A little more about The Jaunt:
The Jaunt creates opportunities and possibilities for artists. The project allows artists to travel the world and find inspiration – not just during the trip, but lasting inspiration that hopefully permeates their entire artistic practise. The Jaunt’s mission is to catalyse progress and feed fresh insight into the creative process of our artists. The first step in this process is taking the artist out of their comfort zone and allowing them experience completely new surroundings.
“Our quest for this trip was to lose the impression of time and to get lost on this small Greek island called Folegandros. On our first day, we walked to a small creek called Agios Nikolaos. The water is a picture-perfect transparent and the beach carries a sense of serenity while people are reading in the shade of tamarisks. We fell completely in love with this paradise. The island looks like a parenthesis out of time, a raw wild beauty!
We discovered all of the island, from south to north and east to west. We hiked the mountains on the island, took public transport and rented a scooter to get around. From the arid landscapes with donkeys, goats and a lost olive tree, to the city of Chora where the entire island congregates in the evening to visit the restaurant and enjoy the Greek specialties. For our print, we made a kind of summary of the island. Blending the architecture, textures, shapes, and colours we encountered. Making it a collage of all our memories during our trip.“
