"I usually enjoy the art of not creating expectations for new spaces, especially on this trip when I was visiting Sweden for the first time. I allowed the experiences to happen to me. Overall I would say the week consisted of drinking, sharing stories and in between, we were eating. I thoroughly enjoyed interacting with my fellow artists during the Summer Camp. The discussions we shared during those few days were some of the most honest conversations I have had with creatives in my recent experience. We talked about social connections, thriving and doing the best to make studio practice as artists, all beautiful journeys.
Being in the landscapes of the tucked away corners of Sweden was a beautiful experience. The wild mushrooms out in the woods, were a whole installation on their own. For the first time, I flew a drone (one of the other artists had brought it to the Summer Camp). I was fascinated by the impressions seen through the screen. As I returned to the studio, reinterpreting these flat plains and shapes I experienced through colours and my drawing patterns, began what became the final artwork. The direction that the Jaunt artwork took me through was a new one, especially how the end result became to be, coming full circle to me allowing the experiences to happen to me."
