Wow, just wow. The past week has been surreal. I've been fortunate enough to experience four shows of the band that truly changed my life, on a side of the planet I'd never thought I'd ever visit. And I got to experience it with some of the most loving, amazing and fun people out there. There are no words to describe the gratitude I feel for being able to embrace such a source of happiness, inspiration and motivation. It's this that makes that good ol' kick out of my comfort zone worth it (no matter how hard it is, every single time). I'm sad that this week has come to an end, but there's no way that this smile leaves my face anytime soon 🖤 #nogreatartevercomesfromcomfort #dillingerozscapeplan #thedillingerescapeplan
"Rite de passage" (🔴) - part of my first feature show "LIMINAL" at #archenemyarts. This is the last week you'll be able to see this show in person, together with some other amazing shows that are currently on view. Please visit the gallery's website for more information on the opening hours and the available works.
While I'm exploring all the magic that Australia has to offer, I can't help thinking about all the new paintings/ stories I wish I'd be working on. In the meantime, however, there are still quite a few paintings from my show 'Liminal' that I'd like to share with you. Here's the full view of "Divinations", where I tried to capture some magic myself 🔮🐿 #archenemyarts #liminal
From A to Hegemony (swipe for full image). I stumbled upon the original sketch for this piece and figured I'd share it with you 😊. I absolutely adore bee-eaters, and the idea for this painting came about when I was thinking about the systems of power and control in our society, systems we face every single day. So to include bees in this painting in such a way felt strangely natural, and became a reflection of my thoughts and feelings at the time. 🐝 "hegemony" is part of my show LIMINAL at #archenemyarts. Please check their website for any information on this show, including the last (!😱) available piece 💙.
Here's the full image of "Adapt". While I was working on this piece I was also busy trying to move out of my beloved home. It was so unexpected, hectic and just emotionally draining that I felt that all I was doing was trying to survive. I was forced to adapt by staying creative and making the best of every unexpected situation that I faced. It was this exact feeling that inspired this piece, and it became one of my personal favorite pieces that I now get to share with you ••• my show, "LIMINAL" is currently on view at #archenemyarts . "Adapt" is the last available piece from this show, so if you're interested in adopting this little baby, now is your chance 💕. Visit the gallery's website for more information, or send them an email for any further inquiries •••
Here's the full version of "Celebrate", part of my first feature show "LIMINAL" at Arch Enemy Arts. This painting already has a new home to go to, but check out the gallery's website for a complete overview of my show and for more information about the available pieces. 💚
THANK YOU SO MUCH to everyone who came out to the opening last night and who supported me by adopting one of my paintings into their lives or by blessing me with their kind words. To say that I'm humbled and overwhelmed by all the love you gave me is an understatement. I am beyond grateful and will cherish this experience for a long long time. 💕
Only a couple of days until it's First Friday here in Philly which means it's only a couple of days before 4 amazing new shows open at #archenemyarts ! I've been lucky enough to work on one of these shows, and can't wait to share my work with you 😍! ••• here's a sneak peek of "Rite de Passage", part of my show LIMINAL ••• if you want to see the full image before the show opens to the public, please email #archenemyarts to request the special collector's preview 💕
Hi NYC. Thanks for welcoming me with your nice weather and the two corgis that happened to be at the airport. Slight problem, though: It's been about 20 hours since I've last seen this furless baby and I already miss her to bits. Crazy cat lady sans cat, for a whole month and some more. #sadbunny #hideyourcats
"Royal blue II" was inspired by the Delft pottery and its Delft Blue tiles, that remind me of home. I worked on these pieces while having to move out of my own home, which made the process of working on this show even more interesting (and even more intense) than I could have imagined it to be. I'm excited to share the full pieces with you all next week, when "LIMINAL" opens on oct 6th. Please email #archenemyarts if you're interested to get on the preview list for this show. 💙
While I'm getting ready for my trip to NYC (and Philly, and Melbourne, and Brisbane, and Sydney - 😱😱😱) it seems like the perfect time to post a little preview of "Honey, I'm home" , part of my upcoming show "LIMINAL" at #archenemyarts 🍵🐝. ••• Please get in touch with the gallery if you're interested to get on the preview list for this show 💕 •••
I got the chance to add some birds to my hometown during this year's #thebigdraw ☺️. It's such a lovely festival and I feel honored I got the opportunity to be part of it again. If you live in the area, come and say hi, and explore all the cool things this festival has to offer! #thebigdrawnijmegen #neverenoughbirds
