On a positive note – one of those few and far between – Juha (@ Q Art Lounge) and I got into an agreement that I can use the gallery space as a painting studio after hours and we’ll try to set up a space where I can work on the thesis during opening times. This is beyond awesome. It fixes so many issues about working space at home! I share a small flat with another girl; my room is about 11sqm and the kitchen – where I’ve been doing all of my work – is about the same size. (Large painting + small space + no easel) = (ergonomic torture+pissy flatmate).
In return, I provide company and stand in for him when needed. And, obviously, spend all my money on the café products.
