After the amazing feedback I had from my latest dreamy ink paintings I knew I had to make more paintings like this.
Working without a care is always a delight and now that I am feeling creative I wanted to make a few more of these lovely paintings.
The crispy vintage paper lets the ink flow in a very unusual way, creating images with a ghostly quality.
Life experiences and ties between our ancestors make us what we are today. We stand on the shoulders of the ones that came before us to be what we are today, and even tough they may be long gone, their memories still live within us.
I wanted to remember that we are all connected, we are all belong somewhere else thanks to our connections from our pasts. At some point, our families were migrants too. They arrived to new places, they were received with love and respect and thrived into what we are today.
That is why I chose to divert from making realistic, detailed faces. They are like the memories of our ancestors, faded in time and space but still with us, on what we remember of them, our our family traditions, on our culture.
Even after all this time, lest us not forget that they came before us, some from distant places, always looking for a better future for themselves and their descendants. We admire them for their courage, and thank them for taking the risk of leaving what they knew to try to make a better world for us who came before them.
