Heads and Minds

with a full head we loose ourself

This is the first and second drawing of a series of surreal portraits called “head in the clouds” and “light headed”.
They are made with graphite powder, graphite stick and pencil on paper, the dimensions are 35×57 inches.
I started them basically with the outbreak of the pandemic in Hawaii. (March 2020)


These drawings are inspired by our mental overload. Memories often pile up and keep us from living in the present moment.
We create imbalances of the mind and body, heart and soul, higher self and the material reality. We get lost.


By entering a meditative state often listening to specific music and sounds I channel higher energies and let the hand do the inspired talking.
I invite you to find your own associations and inner images while looking at the details of the portrait.

Thank you for your interest and support. ::anika::
