Tramontana And Other Winds


I'm still inspired by the Adriatic, its islands and blue water. After the painters from previous post left, some of us stayed on Rab for a couple of more days, in my case only two. I painted another abstract calligraphic wind. Actually, it didn't have a title or specific content at the time. I used to be inspired by words and texts, but I'm not anymore. I just let ideas flow, they don't have to mean anything. The meaning usually arrives latter. Tramontana was one of those nameless paintings, painted almost out of nothing. If I thought about anything, it was playing with glazes in the background. I used to invent elaborate titles to my paintings, they usually spoke to me alone and were connected to the text which inspired me to paint in the first place. Not anymore. I don't think about titles. While painting Tramontana, I sat with J under the trees from the previous post. She said the painting looked like wind, like tramontana leaving silvery trails.

So I decided to name the other two as well and wind related titles came naturally as if I was inspired by winds even before I started painting. The titles are Inner Side of the Wind and Bakar Bay Wind (which can be pretty nasty in winter time, throwing water around).

Še vedno me navdihuje Jadran, otoki in morje. Potem, ko je večina slikarjev odšla, nas je nekaj ostalo na Rabu. Midva sva podaljšala za dva dni. Občutno premalo pa vendar. Naslikala sem še eno abstraktno kaligrafsko na temo vetra. pravzaprav takrat še ni imela naslova. Nekoč so me navdihovala besedila, sedaj ne več. Ne morem reči, da navdih izhaja iz česar koli oprijemljivega. Samo slikam, ne razmišljam več. Pomen, vsebina pride kasneje. Tramontana je ena od takih slik. Če sem sploh o čem razmišljala, sem o tehniki, o igri lazur v ozadju. Včasih sem si izmišljevala zapletene naslove, take, ki so nekaj povedali samo meni in so po navadi izhajali iz besedil, ki so bila podlaga slikam. Niti o naslovnih ne razmišljam več. Tudi ta bi ostala brez, če ne bi J pripomnila, da jo spominja na veter. Na tramontano, ki pušča srebrnkaste sledi.

Tako sem se odločila, da poimenujem tudi drugi dve sliki, ki sta nastali na Rabu. Skoraj v trenutku sta privrela na dan naslova, ravno tako povezana z vetrovi: Notranja stran vetra in Veter v Bakarskem zalivu (ki zna biti precej neugoden, ko pozimi premetava vodo sem ter tja).
