Lake of the Chrystal Tears in the series Long Journey represents the first stage of my astral journey. The shapes that unconsciously appeared in Crystals 1 and 2 turned out to be pentagonal dodecahedrons.
Cristals (part 1), 117 x 153 cm, charcoal, pencil and pastel on paper, 2014.
These Platonic solids are universally considered to be the building blocks of the cosmos.
Cristals (part 2) 118 x 152 cm, charcoal and pencil on paper, 2014.
My fascination about this discovery lead me to the drawing of Universe. I realised that Universe posed the question in what way our inner conception is connected with the essence of reality.

Was this series actually bringing me closer to the answers to the questions about my origin, what makes me who I am, and what my destination is?
Inside, 120 x 170 cm, charcoal pencil and pastel on paper, 2014.
Embrace, 78 x 120 cm, charcoal pencil and pastel on paper, 2015.
The Beginning, 75 x 120 cm, charcoal pastel and pencil on paper, 2015.
We Transfer, 71 x 120 cm, charcoal pencil and pastel on paper, 2015.
We Transform 1, 40.5 x 29.5 cm, charcaol pastel and pencil on passe partout, 2015.
The quest continued with Looking For where I encapsulated the pentagonal dodecahedrons in some kind of body, with light as an essential component. Were these Platonic solids a form of DNA?
Looking For, 100 x 236 cm, pencil and charcoal on paper, 2015.
In Space, 29.5 x 43,5 cm, ink pencil on passe partout, 2015.
Moonlight, 30 x 45 cm, mixed techniques on passe partout, 2015.
Funnel, 32 x 25 cm, pencil on passe partout, 2015.
Looking For announced the end of my journey. It had been a Big Journey and I realised that the next drawing called Making Of was the final destination. In this drawing the Platonic solids had transformed and grounded. But I had no idea where. Was it earth? Or yet another plane of existence? These questions triggered the series that would become my next journey.
The Making Of, 118 x 156 cm, pencil charcoal and graphite on paper, 2015.
