Andris has a blister, 2019

113 x 92 cm

paper, watercolor

”Something has happened to the skin. Contact that has left inflammation and rupture. The body has reacted to friction and created an unpleasant blister. When painted it turns into something magnified, exaggerated, banal. I can rip, scratch and stab it, but it’s impossible to heal. Impossible to feel the physical pain of others, it’s only imaginable.”
