Day 1; impressions

ARTISTS JOURNAL

Monday. The water is dripping from the sky. The rotunda has a moat.
Dripping, splashing, ripples all around us, we are an island in the sky.

The Lower Rotunda

Lily pads.
I want to tell the story of the woman with no hair
but. but. I might just tell it to the water instead.

but if Adanma comes visit I’ll tell it to her.

I’m sure there is a rule about not walking on those platforms, those performance-perfect stages, and besides I really want a picture of those water lilies.

Inside and outside the water.
Above and below the water.

Ripples drizzle the membrane (that’s)
separating two elements (air and water)
and the worlds within

Australian born, mixed-media artist, Maija Liepins focuses on the sensory and emotional experience in her visual dreamscapes. Repetitive actions such as dream journals or collecting visual impressions with her mobile phone generates material with which to reveal the subtle, ‘underneath’. Maija’s drawings and films allude to a symbolic mythology as if the intangible substance of dream is a material as real as ink and clay. Her practice is driven by a pursuit of freedom - to express, to create, and to collaborate without inculturated inhibition.
