April 2020/ #coronacrisis

Shutdown, lockdown, keep your distance, wash your hands, stay at home - for three weeks now. And nobody there to tell us when all this will end ... if ever it will.

One thing is sure: the world as we have known it is gone. But then again, as Greta Thunberg puts it, even before Corona there was no "normal". We were in a crisis already, the climate crisis. But we well fed, consumerist Westerners were able to ignore it, put it aside, somehow. Now we have a crisis in the crisis, the latter one having hit us immediately at the core and at a speed, we wouldn't have imagined.

The world has slowed down, the skies are brighter, clearer than ever before, people, although in restraint fear, more relaxed, more caring for each other, more aware of how precious life's moments are ...

And, for me as an artists this is a wonderful experience: people are more open to beauty, to colours and thus to the soothing, joybringing, healing potential of artworks.

So, in this crisis I've been selling some of my small paintings to collectors in France and the US. I'm grateful for that. The times, they sure are a-changing ...

Life in times of Corona .....


I'm sad.

Sad, because after almost a week of self-isolation I miss my mum, whom I was advised not to visit now, I miss hugging people, I miss handshakes, I miss my morning espresso in my favourite café served by the Greek waiter with his lovely smile, I miss the random chats in the street, in the park ...

I can do this, stay at home for one, two or even three weeks - if I was told to get back all of what I miss now after this time. But I'm not, I'm not told anything like that. By nobody. There's just this low voice inside of me, getting louder every day, telling me to brace myself for something different to come, something very different from anything I've known so far.

I'm sad.

I'm sad tonight.
