About The Artwork

Another drawing from the volunteering journey collection. I was meant to spend only one month in Italy after arriving there in early February 2020. Three months later I was still wandering the agricultural hazel tree fields around the house that had become my lockdown home. Already a few months before the ravelling had taught me how to let go of the notion to have everything planned and clear. But this was another level. I was in the middle of this field in Italy, with no concrete address to return to, no idea about my future work plans or how much longer will this country host me - a backpacker with Latvian origin but Brtish residency. Drawing still kept me busy. I was just about to run out of the ideas of which views to draw n my local village when I came across this empty storage building in the middle of the field. Sitting there as if nothing had happened. The original work is drawn on a semi-glossy A3 paper. This paper originally was a poster for a company "Slow food". This old, unused poster was the only paper I had available for drawing during the lockdown time, I used the blank backside of it for drawing. Its smooth surface allows the ink to flow with more richness, creating a high contrast between the black and white. It would be shipped rolled, in a cardboard tube. The paper is thick but flexible and regains its flat position very easily.

Although for the last 10 years London was my home (originally born in Latvia), currently I am a backpacker moving through Europe crisscross. In 2019 I left my office job in London and in late autumn headed out on a volunteering trip. I wanted to learn if I can find a different use of my architectural skills through natural building and learn to live with the unknown while having all my personal belonging fitted in one backpack. Drawing became my companion. I recorded the visual experiences of my journeys through the subject closest to my heart - architecture. Each drawing is not only an image, there is a unique story and location behind every one of them. And behind each story, there is a more personal experience. And the combination of it all is what I am looking to share with the world. The technique of black and white ink drawings was always attractive to me. Daring to work with a pen directly on paper was the very opposite of my character. The wobbly and chaotic line work became a rebelliousness against the fear of making a mistake. It's an attempt to break the notion of right, wrong and proper. Many lines that are seemingly all over the place in wrong directions come together to create the final image.
