A DIARY OF THE INVISBLE

The text of the installation, 2018
Trying out to make a picture with sound.
Singing the vowel E.
Painting the printing plates with eyes closed.
Printing the plates into one picture.
Coincidence brings forth the spaces in a layered monoprint.
First print remains unfinished.
Beginning with tuning the body and meditating.
The sung vowel A resonates in the chest,
the vowel U in the cheeks.
Making prints from both of these vowels.
Gaining experience of how the colors reproduce
the movements of bare hands.
The method is born how to make images
about the quality of the invisible
together, in the meditating state of mind.
The shared meditation synchronizes the nature of the presence.
Through the discussion arises the theme of the moment.
The vowel O, its heavy and slow movement and dark reddish tints
are accepted as the starting point of the painting improvisation.
The method evolves.
At the beginning there are reoccurring thoughts,
there is pressure to succeed:
”Are we in the moment?”
The meditation makes calm.
It continues on, following the drawing hand and
the free drift of the line.
The rustling of the pencil on paper.
The sketch of the image is created.
The firm strength of the experience,
in the mutual presence.
Painter 1: The movement feels emerging outwards,
from the middle torso and back to the centre.
Painter 2: The movement is like the waves surfing to the shore,
outwards from the body, upwards in the picture.
The vowel O quiets down, the U is opening softly.
Creating two prints.
Warm brown and orange colours,
first on white paper, the second on blue background.
The first weekday of the year.
After a long break the work goes on confident, relying that
the theme will grow up from the moment.
Singing AUM today.
Even though accustomed to the method,
new issues emerge at every turn.
Exploring moments of eternity, in eternity.
