Illustrations from Istanbul

In this series that I created during my art residency in Istanbul I have used watercolours and gold, one of my favourite techniques. I have given an ethereal dream like-feel, images that transport us.
The ripped paper gives the idea you have broken into a scene or discovered a secret through the tear, a hidden drawing behind the peeling of an old wall, looking into another world through this window.
The scenes are accompanied by a text, inspiration from poems or a narrative.

They can be experienced in both directions:
The painting as inspiration from the lines of a poem, or the words having found an image with which to resonate.
