My husband and I were lucky we have a comfortable living space in Zurich. We both wanted a modern and minimalistic style for our space. Most of our furniture are white and the walls are white as well except two walls painted in cappuccino brown. One is in the hallway and one in the main living room. I recently claimed the cappuccino wall in the hallway to be my wall. That is where I hang most of my paintings. I also claimed the back wall of the fire place for my painting. There was an empty wall to serve as screen for our projector. I said WAS. Today I finished a painting sized 141X 101 cm and for some reason part of that wall seemed to be the perfect place for my new painting. So I claimed it...while my husband is away on a business trip. Lets see what his reaction will be.
But then again, the point is I am having too much artwork at home. I enjoy seeing them. But at the rate of my production, soon I will have to claim the ceiling as well. So what now?
I very much wanted to have an exhibit. Being new in the art industry and new in Zurich, it is not easy. Since I have taken the role of domesticated goddess ;) I rarely go out and meet new people. I have taken a 360 degrees turn to my being Ms. Congeniality years ago.
I may not be Ms. Friendship now but I am still confident, ambitious and goal oriented. So I searched online for local galleries and viewed their collections. I chose one that is suitable for the style of my artwork. After few hours of research I found the one that I like most. Initially I had doubts and had been thinking twice weather or not to send them a mail. But then, I told myself, what the heck, I should write....what have I got to loose...nothing actually. I was being honest. I have no formal education on arts, no long list of past exhibitions just a dream to share my work to the world. I LOVE TO PAINT AND I CANT STOP PAINTING!
