Wonderful Italy awaits my painting MAN CARRYING A CHILD to participate at an AIAPI, UNESCO official partner exhibition HUMAN RIGHTS, curated by Roberto Ronca. AIAPI stands for Associazione Internazionale Arti Plastiche Italia.
I have not been posting for a while, because the real life has taken all of my time. It has been extremely busy, it always is. Corona made everything even busier, because with kids of 2 and 4 around + full career, you can imagine it. I was invited to Venice International Art Fair 2020, but it all got cancelled.
Liis Koger opened a solo show at Fahle Gallery in Tallinn. The exhibition lasts through May and ends in the middle of June 2019. The personal exhibition is curated by Meelis Tammemägi. All photos here are made by Endel Apsalon Photography and belong to the courtesy of Liis Koger Art. All paintings are Liis Koger originals.
Take painting with two kids under three as a training to be UNSTOPPABLE, which you are if you want it enough. After that, noone is ever going to say I don't have enough time so that you would consider it serious. The only way to achieve the outcome of your thought manifesting in reality is to actually practice creating something step by step, even if the gorilla gets in your room.
There's a huge difference between the standard of living and the standard of life. While the first allows us to surround ourselves with plenty of pretty stuff, most of it stays hidden in the drawers, cupboards and garages. The second on the other hand is focusing on what can be perceived with all our senses.
My second child, Ekke, was born on 16th of July. Welcome, Cancerian Rainbow boy! There is so much in common between creating a human being and creating a painting. All is letting life come through. Isn't it strange how mothers/creators talk about birthpains and suffering (of an artist), but none focuses on the pains of the newborn. It must be a huge thing coming onto this planet. All the atmosphere changes to bare!
