Luna Voss Studios
My first solo show was a great success. The main theme were the "Courage to be myself" portraits of my friends from hospital. Emilka, one of the sitters, sang for us. Andrzej Kalemba recited a poem he wrote about her, as well as some of his other poetry. I also showed some of my other works, and allowed guests to have access to the studio to see works I'm currently working on.
The show raised awareness and visibility of mental health among our friend group. Many realised a lot more people will reach for help for their mental health then they knew, as it is something so private.
I got particularly good feedback on the text that came with the portraits, where I asked individuals what mental wellness meant to them,
