What did your stay at Messen mean for your artistic work?
The emptiness and spatial environment around Messen and also the private studio gave me space and time to settle and digest the thoughts and sentiments. It is one of the most peaceful time in my life.
What were the results?
I was able to visualise a new series of drawings.
What, if it did, did your stay mean for you in your artistic work and development?
It is meaningful for me to have the peaceful mind for my creations. And it also helps me to know better the direction of the coming works.
What did your stay do for your knowledge of Hardanger and Norway?
The stay definitely provides me a chance to know better and place and local people.
How has the stay influenced your contact with other artists?
It was very nice to share sometimes with other artists, to know the ways how others practise their arts and also how they live. I have more desire to draw when there is working atmosphere in Messen.
