“Being a “city” artist living and working in the heart of Amsterdam it has been a very interesting contrast to swap a busy city life for a very peaceful, tranquil environment. I am very grateful to Jennifer for this opportunity and to work together with Gabriel.”

Julia Kiryanova

“The surrounding countryside lifts the spirit and has helped me focus on a fresh series of work, cut off from the din of the outside world. The fact that there is no pressure and that I can be in my own space has given me the freedom to experiment, focusing on drawing, line work and a diverse palette.”

Gabriel Buttigieg

“The residency was essential in that, in itself, it was meant to be a space where I could experiment with drawing and painting, focusing on the feminine, removed from daily distractions. The still and solitary context was essential in providing me with a forum to conclude a number of important projects, preliminary works to the exhibition. Moreover, I could conduct the necessary historical, artistic, and theoretical research, which will act as the foundation stones for the forthcoming exhibition. Finally, I could initiate international contacts, which are so crucial to growth.”
