With the two weeks that remained in the residency, I decided to remove myself from the seclusion of the studio and to explore the different museums and cultural happenings in and around Barcelona. The first few days were dedicated to getting lost. I wanted to wander around and stumble upon parts of Barcelona that I was not expecting to find. While there are plenty of galleries, museums and monuments, I did not want to spend my time racing from one destination to the next. Instead, I incorporated time to meander through the streets and find things that were unexpected. While I am highly influenced by artistic masters of the past, they are not the solitary source of my creative inspiration. I wanted to soak in as much of my surroundings as possible and see how these different elements would reemerge in my future creations.
