Being a woman in the modern world is a constant fight between the feminine existence and social pressure. The person you really are goes through a crucifiction every day. There is so many things that one can't show even to herself but it's still all there...
When I was in Hospital I was thinking about home. I asked my Angels to take me home. Half of them took me to the house where my children were waiting for me but the rest lifted me up to the eternal home next to God. I should never forget one or the other.
The next 12 paintings are part of my exhibition in Paris (Galerie Gavart, April 5-18th 2008). The exhibition was deducated to my husband Alan who died on Christmas Day 2007. All paintings reflect my memories I collected over the last 4 years in our Estonian farm. The painting above also belongs to the Paris collection. It is the first one I painted after the big change. The Paris collection (24) is in Estonia. To see all contact: email@example.com
Dream a Little Dream With Me, 2x 66x66 cm, Spain (sold)
We all dream about the places we have never been. One day... How does look the reality compared to the dreams? I personally enjoy my dream-travelling a lot. Those two pictures are somthing Mediterranean. Dreams can take me to the world that doesn't exist anymore or is yet to be created. No tickets needed.
This picture is probably about dreams of our perfect future. The hights of power are far away and the change comes from there. From distance everything looks better but I am not sure it's a very lovely place to be. The building on my dream landscape looks a bit like the White House. My WHite House is full of good stuff. Lets hope that so is the other one.
The everyday life...we all do our things and somtimes don't call our friends for days. I think it is because we never feel alone enough. The people are out there and when we need them they became a suportive structure around us. But is it really so? Call your friend today!
The Burning Bushes are about the discovery every person should make in life. Moses found he's way when God had a little conversation with him in form of a burning bush. There is the burning bush of inlightement for each one of us. We just have to be ready to recognise it. Good luck!
In the school I was a total outsider. I spent my childhood alone. When the horror of musthave education was finished I still felt that I don't fit in but there was all world on front of me and no school to stop me. The transformation is still going on: from beast to beauty.
When travelling by roads one can see most wonderful pictures. I remember the early mornings after a night in the bus. Twisted body was not importent enough to take away the pleasure of a wonderful sight soon I opened my eyes. I know that William Turner also travelled a lot and was inspired by Sun and strange landscapes. The one I painted here is probably somthing he also noticed: a Romian bridge on Mediterranean coast.
"The Flight of Icaros" Iron Maiden, 110x110 cm. (not for sale)
The eternal circle from the years of experience and old age to the wings of the young ones. When the old man is triyng to call back the young Icaros he knows that he's own hart actually wants to fly to the Sun, too.
Walking through the seasons as a traveller the fields next to the road change. The ripening crops in August fill my hart with cratitude. The smell of richness that Nature is ready to give for hard work can never be seen as clearly as at the end of Summer. (Painting inspired by a song from Anne Maasik)
