Fresh off IcelandAir & headed to the post office. Thank you to those who’ve waited so patiently on your paintings/drawings/prints to ship!
I am a one stop shop apparently 😂. I AM the new age circus and I can’t wait to collaborate and join up with @momentomcollective for THREE months in Bali in 2018. Hopefully this won’t be the first or last time 😘 #momentomcollective#mytribe#artistresidency
"I don't know that we could continue to function without residencies. It has become a necessary counterbalance to the intensity of our day-to-day lives. This has to do with spaciousness and inactivity as much as it does with the space and time to work. It has a lot to do with sustainability over years and decades."

⚡️Today is as special day, we just launched our website (👆🏻check our bio). Zone d’Utopie Temporaire (Z.U.T.) is a nomadic annual residency which addresses the notion of Utopia as a vehicle for artistic and critical comment. The last three editions in Paris, London and Athens were unique human experiences and @bonnota is currently organising the next two editions. On the website you can find documentation of the previous residencies as well as future announcements for open calls #zutresidency#zonedutopietemporaire#artistresidency#art#alicebonnot#contemporary

Holi powder - You’ve seen movies of that Indian celebration (Hindu Holi festival) where everyone is wildly throwing colored powder in the air, on each other, dancing about and having a very grand time getting all mucked up and mucking others up with bright colors. It is a spring celebration of the return of light, good over evil, and has more in-depth meaning for many Hindus. Luckily, I missed that celebration though everyone looks like they are having such a good time in the Indian documentaries. (Admittedly disappointed they weren’t pigment candidates for painting.)
Varanasi is endlessly interesting for absorbing some culture and doing art research - participating in Kriti Gallery residency here in India www.janeynow.com

The Story of a Disappearance and an Appearance - Stretching the paintings which followed me from Berlin to Marrakech. For the first time my inner migratory bird has been chasing the sun accompanied by a colorful flock. We came to spread joy and wonder, singing songs of bliss! Chirpy Chirpy Cheep Cheep Cheep.
Second day of my second residency here in Japan. First day of cutting and printing in mokuhanga since leaving Mi-lab where I took a 5 week beginners course in Japanese woodblock printing (also known as mokuhanga (or ukiyoe)). I'm now working in a really great studio and surrounded by talented and energetic printmakers. In just 2 days I've already picked up a few new techniques that I hadn't learnt on the course simply through the osmosis of making stuff in a workshop and despite almost no English being spoken - who needs it when you have 👀&🙌
