Spice of Earth (2017-2018)
The yellow colour attracts me; its warm tone, vividness and at the same time calmness. It is because I come from a southern country, where the bright light and dryness of the long summers create a yellow glow over the sunburned land and contrasts the blue of the sea and the sky.
I found that perfect tone of yellow in the spice of turmeric and used it in many different ways; as dust, paint or liquid but also in combination with other natural materials.
A very characteristic element of this particular spice is the smell which reveals it natural identity and brings the final picture in life as it asks from the viewer to also use the sense of smell, a not that frequent used sense in the arts.
