These leaves come from a vine growing wild at the side of my house. I noticed it about a month ago and before I knew it it started blooming beautiful dainty bell shaped flowers... It reminds me of the garden at our home in London. Anyway, I cut some of the leaves and dried them. The other day at the studio I decided to try some monoprints on paper and fabric. Can't wait to do some more...

It's always so interesting to discover associations, links, or as in this case a very predictable evolution, or sequence of thought in one's work. Here is an example. All of last week I have been working on a series of monoprints, while thinking that I was starting something so definitely different from previous work. Then, at a certain moment, I lifted my head and looked towards the other side of the room; and there it was: "interruption", the paper structure I completed last week! In the warm light of an afternoon ray of sun, it appeared as an apocalyptic revelation; suddenly it was so evident the starting point of this week's ink movement experimentation! Last week's "interruption" changing into these current rhythms of light!

in-ter-rup-tion; what a word, what a meaning, what a gamut of sentiment generating situation! It can be a surprise; it can be a relief, it can also be a break from a state of concentration and then it becomes an annoying disturbance. An interruption of a perceived state of harmony and peace? A bang of emotions generated by misunderstandings, miscommunications, wrongly perceived and accepted truths? A certain kind of interruption occurred recently that brought me into a state of absurd need for concentration, almost into a meditative needy state that translated into a frenzy of paper cutting, slashing, tearing and finally into a composition titled: interruption. What a satisfying consolation when art becomes a safe cocoon!
