I’ve been hibernating a bit. But it’s time to come out and test the air again. And I feel very lucky to be able to go do that in… Budapest! I’ve been offered an artist residency in the wonderful capital of Hungary. Very exciting! Almost 3 months of creative exploration in a place I’ve never been, with new contacts/friendships to explore and a chance to exhibit at the end. I expect my brain to be in overdrive, not just sorting out what to take, but which ideas to develop. There’s clearly enough architecture to see there and I feel my hands itching for intricate pen drawings. Also curious about the parks there and any art in public spaces. Residencies are such a great opportunity to open your eyes to new things, meet people with other perspectives and skills, and devote full days to art (though that can be a bit daunting!).
