hand clinic series - breaking tension by 

ink on canson’s drawing paper 220 gsm about A3 size
.. done mainly by my non dominant left hand :) from life about 20 min max (but no idea really how long this took)

..yesterday I have seen my hand taken out of the splinter and my middle finger with two wires poking out of it …. wow …what a sight … it actually made me a little nauseated … looked like a hand of someone else …. and gave me many ideas …..


ink, hand, hospital, works on paper

I believe arts making creates connection between our inner and outer worlds.
I love the depth, the lightness, the playfulness, the seriousness and the inexpressibly sincere nature of relationships which tend to ‘just happen’ while sharing interests, passions and frustrations about art :)

    WoW!!! These are amazing drawings Anna!!! They have an incredible looseness to them and the lines are incredible … so much atmosphere! I can’t help but feel for those beautiful hands and wonder what it must be like to see them like this, but you have expressed it so beautifully! XX

  • ooohhh thanks so much … those lines i worked with a skewer :) … and the whole week waiting for the surgery being send three times home each time after whole day fasting was rather tough …LOL

    This is an amazing series Anna. Although it is hard to pick one and each one tells its own story this one is my favouirte .Your hand just looks so vulnerable and beautiful while at the same time excuding pain and ..yes tension.And to think you created this with your non dominant hand just leaves me admiring your talent and resilientce even more. take care V:) xxoo

  • …thank you so much Valentina :)
