VIEW IN MY ROOM
The small villages of the Italian Alps are filled with history and character. Sordevolo was an hour walk away from the old monastery (currently a guesthouse, restaurant and museum) in which I was a volunteer for 5 weeks. Plastered walls, wooden shutters and clay tile roofs with chimnies forests. The narrow streets with narrow buildings are creating a vertical rhythm throughout the whole village. The original work is drawn on the other side of an old, unused poster. This was the only paper I had available during the lockdown. It is a heavy, semy glossy paper that with its smooth surface allows the ink to flow from the pen more freely. That creates a great contrast between the white and black, giving a print-like effect. It is a very flexible paper and straightens out very easily once removed from the tube.

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.
