VIEW IN MY ROOM
Drawing from the third collection created during my volunteering journey. Cervera del Maestre is a village that started to emerge 700 years ago. Much of the buildings are built using the stone from the castle ruin on top of the hill, on the edge of the village. It very strongly shows the historical style of designing settlements hundreds of years ago - narrow streets, narrow, tall buildings strategically located on top of a hill. And all this is surrounded by fields of olive, almond and carob trees. Step into the wild hills around and you will be overwhelmed by a smell of the many beautiful bushes of wild rosemary. This view is captured from the highest point in the village - castle ruins. The original drawing is on a 240gsm paper, drawn with 0.05 and 0.1 felt pens. These fine ink pens create extra delicate, thin lines giving it a light feel. This allows for two experiences, one from the distance when seeing the drawing as a whole, and one closeup, revealing many seemingly chaotic lines that built up all the details.

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.
