A Casual Trainwreck

Beneath the Skin | My First Art Show!

In blogging land it’s a common thing to write down New Year’s Resolutions close to Silvester. Usually, I’d laugh about the idea of making resolutions but for the sake of keeping up with the trend, I wrote mine down. On my list, it says that I want to have an ‘actual art show’ – whatever that means.

I had this idea brewing in my head for a while and teamed up with the awesome illustrator Jacqueline Kaulfersch to plan a show. When things got serious, we settled on the title ‘Unter die Haut’ (Beneath the Skin). I used the creative work to process all the highlights and low points of my last year. I guess I’ve used the art to come to terms with all the change that occurred and I feel calmer than I’ve felt in a long time.

Last week, it was finally time to reveal what we’ve been working on for the past couple of months at a new artsy coffee shop. The owner was generous enough to let us do whatever we wanted. It was a stressful day but in the end, it was all worth it. All I have left to say is thank you for showing up and being interested – I attached some photos of the event below. Our artwork will be hanging at café vergissmeinnicht (Griesgasse 26, 8020 Graz, Tuesday–Friday from 11 AM till 7 PM) until October 18th.
