Do you have a sketchbook with you?
I am happy to be chosen for a collective show of SKETCHBOOKS.
My sketchbook is a hand-drawn picturebook, and it contains a short story which is called „I always wanted to be pink”. It tells about a person who is green and always wanted to be pink, and another one who is pink and always wanted to be green. I worked on semiabstract traces of green ink painted onto wet paper, and I finished it up with crayons, giving it very narrative approach, and drawing the story’s characters, details of their faces and hands, as well as bigger landscapes.
Same as last year, I submitted a sketchbook which was produced by hand. This year I made it out of paper, and last year I used paper, cartonbox and a transparent jacket with linocut figure printed on it. I’m happy to be a part of expo again this year.
Here is how the „I always wanted to be pink” came to life:
The sketchbooks were chosen for show by the Jury of „Szkic ma moc” competition, and they will be on display this summer (2023). I enjoy to be selected by the great organisers, and I am excited to see the other works together with mine in the beautiful printed catalogue that is released with the exhibition.
