A little bit of Rhodes on my balcony

Well, it is not a surprise that I do miss my beloved Rhodes island. But untill my next visit I try to create a kind of ‘rhodian’ atmosphere at my home. So I just picked the most basic garden-furniture ever from IKEA: TÄRNÖ chairs and tables, and I painted them with 2 specific colors which I see very often on the streets of the villages of Rhodes island. These two colors were ocher and gentian blue. Of course my love helped me with burnishing the wooden pieces and with disassembling the parts of the furniture, that I would never ever do by myself…

The design itself just happened, I did not think a lot about them. I just wanted to create inverse pieces – as I processed 2 chairs and 2 tables.

Sooo, this is how it happened:

And finally I show you all my inspirations for this project from the lovely, colorful Rhodes island (photos were taken by me in Lachania, Koskinou, Archangelos villages and in the Old Town of Rhodes):

//EN// I am a Hungarian woman living on the Greek island of Rhodes where I have been researching the characteristics of the local landscape and culture since 2015. This journey and work gives me the sprakle to write (on this blog and at other venues), and to create artworks of pressed flowers and herbs which is a great botano-mythical journey, my little nature worship in the great temple of Mother nature. My topics: human integrity, interactions between a culture and an individual, recognizing and understanding nature's order and the cosmic patterns in the human (body and psyche) and their interconnectedness with the non-human world, mythology & archetypes, the Great Mother archetype, women's health, and healing through rebonding with nature (especially with the plant world). "There is nothing you can see that is not a flower; There is nothing you can think that is not the moon." - Matsuo Basó //HU// Főként a szavak és a képek nyelvén közlő, önálló utat kijárni próbáló, gondolkodó, örökösen válaszokat kereső embernek tartom magamat. Jelenleg Rodosz szigetén élek, ahol 2015 óta próbálom megfejteni a Mediterránum ezen szegletének (engem mágnesként fogva tartó) géniuszát a helyi természetben, kultúrában, egyéni történetekben - valamint saját folytonosan átalakuló viszonyulásomat e költészettől parázsló tájhoz, annak ambivalens jelenkori kultúrájához. Ez a kimeríthetetlen felfedező munka lett írásaim epicentruma. A Rodoszi Herbárium a görög szigetek természeti gazdagságának és éteri szépségének egyszerre megidézési- és megismerési kísérlete. A helyi növények gyűjtésével, préselésével és képekké alakításával nem csak a teremtés szépségében gyönyörködöm, hanem segít kapcsolódnom a fény útjához, a vegetáció diverzitásához és ritmusához, mitikus történetek, ókori gondolkodók elfeledett bölcsességéhez, emberi tudattalanom szunnyadó ősképeihez, kozmikus analógiákhoz, és mindezen keresztül saját lényegemhez.
