VIEW IN MY ROOM
Continuing the series of my volunteering journey in Italy, here is a drawing of the only street in the village which was my home for over four months during the first lockdown. All of the houses were tightly built next to each other, leaving plenty of land outside of it for vineyards and hazel tree fields. These here were our direct neighbours. The street always seemed quiet until I was suddenly surprised by a dog barking behind the fence or a curious face looking through the window. The original drawing, like all the others in this collection, is drawn on the other side of an unused A3 poster - the only paper available to me while the nearby town had closed it's doors to shoppers.

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.
