“If I could make a wish …”


This project began in a very private setting and includes only a few completed portraits – it exists more in my head and heart. I wake up nights with it and it accompanies me when I go walking around the lake. It is patiently waiting to take the leap from private to public, remaining in the meantime despondently in my head. However, if I see people on the street with a yearning expression on their face, I feel the urge to grab paper and paints and to ask them: “if you could make a wish …! Close your eyes and imagine in your mind and in your heart that you could go to the place where it will come true. Then give me a sign and I will translate it into colour and form.”
