Windows to the Soul
Eyes are the windows to the soul and windows are the eyes of the house. They let light into our lives and reflect back to us what they see.

While we use different mediums – Nyata works with wool and Ingrid paints on silk – we realized that we have a lot in common regarding how we think about our art. We want it to be fluid and light, reflective and inviting, without revealing too much. For Nyata the tactile aspect of her art is important as she creates soft, warm, three-dimensional pieces that can be experienced also for those who cannot see with their eyes. By exploring the windows and doors of the beloved old houses of her childhood, Ingrid opens up for new possibilities, dimensions and forms of expression in her own art and journey, and invites others to do so too.

Peering into a person’s eyes, we try to see their soul, and also see the reflection of our own. What’s hiding in the depths of the eyes? Fear? Love? Condemnation? Or is all this just our own reflection? Looking through the windows of houses, we can see a piece of someone’s life, guess what this house contains? Who are these people whose lives pass within these walls? The eyes of people and the eyes of houses can tell so much.
