In August '21, I received a request from the galleryIdeelartfor a a commissioned painting of 120 x 160 cm, based onPoetry of life 6. A commission of such a large scale work is always challenging, especially because I'm a process painter and I don't work with a specific plan or sketches. Therefore I can't say in advance how the result will look like.
Life is a chain of events, big and small, happy and not so joyful happenings which evoke emotional responses continuously. With this series of paintings, my intention is to give expression to this chain of events not through words, but through paint, with visual elements, marks, textures and a history of layers in the paint surface.
Now that I'm back on track, I'm working on a whole new series of paintings in oil and cold wax.I'm inspired by my new surroundings and the abundance of light I experience here is reflected in my paintings.
