These works are from my exhibition Feelings must look like amebas held in The Icelandic Printmakers Association's gallery in July 2011. The main focus in the exhibition were drawings which I had made during the winter 2010 to 2011 in Istanbul. The drawings were most often made with pen and color pencils but some of the pictures were made with watercolor mounted on cotton. On the floor of the exhibition room there were five two dimensional large scale ,,Amebas'' installed. The amebas or in fact; the feelings, were made of plywood. Many of the pictures in the exhibition were framed into old frames, collected from various places, both in Iceland and Istanbul.
