VIEW IN MY ROOM
In February 2020 my volunteering/backpacking journey took me to North Italy. I joined my hosts to visit a meeting in the nearby village, where the locals were discussing ideas on how to save the local river from continuous pollution. While walking through the village, this rooftop view emerged in front of me. A see of clay roof tiles in a juxtaposition. This drawing is my exploration of this view through a freehand drawing, mesh of lines and contrasts between the white and black. The original drawing was created with the simple Muji 0.38 ballpoint combined with uni-ball 0.38 pen on the only paper I had available when far away from art shops - reverse side of an old, unused poster. The glossy, slippery surface of this paper allowed for the pen to slide more effortlessly and ink to flow extra smooth, increasing the contrast between the white and back even more.

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.
