Art Yoga

I have noticed that this picture of me, taken in Prague, mirrors my collage ‘The Artworld.’ This is the body language of art appreciation/enlightment that I have named Art Yoga.


Incorporated Experience

Today, it makes exactly one month since I lived Krumlov. At the time my senses were sharper than ever. I was pulsating sensitivity and images would come to my minda at any time. Compositions, with clear colours and scale would come from within.


Adeus Krumlov.

This is my last blog from Krumlov. The Artist in Residence Program experience showed me that the ‘residence’ concept works both ways: outwards and inwards.



There is a blank canvas beautifully primed waiting for me at my open air studio. I really like to follow the ritual of applying successive layers of gesso and carefully sanding the canvas in between each coat.

Maintaining the Rhythm

The real challenge is not to achieve something rather it is to maintain it. And, this has been the case. I am rotating between the three projects by working a few hours on each of them.

Getting into the Zone

I am entering into the second week of my residence and I can feel that my soul is only now arriving here to meet my body. It is an Brazilian indian idea that if someone travels too fast, the soul will be able to catch up only later on. There are these st…
