Art made me realize why I want to grow old.
There’s something sensual about the way Meral Alma approaches her art. “The thought of having no paints for just one single day is enough to cause a panic attack,” she says. “Every observation generates new ideas. Unfortunately, to implement some ideas, I would need to be a physicist, engineer or chemist rather than a painter.”
Her art and her enthusiasm for it are much more than just a job for Meral Alma: ” Art has made me realize why I want to live to a very old age: Because there is still so much I want to discover, and I simply need the time to realize all the ideas and impressions.”
