Acrylic painting on prepared hardboard panel no frame. 60 x 60 cm.
I have been born in the mysterious Land van Maas en Waal in the Netherlands. I always remember the fairy-tale words of my grandmother about witches and secret societies. No doubt, that these stories have formed me to the artist I now am.
Of course I have made this artwork due to the people who were important for me, but not only for them. It's also about who I am, where I come from and where we go to when our life is ended.
I am very interested in our people's world and in cultural and sexual diversity. I mostly therefore work in projects and my basic-project is indeed about "the world of people" as a sort of general research.
"The Land of my fathers is about men and women behind often beautiful looking facades in the middle of the chaotic universe we live in. I research the raw site of our lives represented as fairytales in a wonderland as a enlargement of our life. Enlarged characters in chaos, beauty and imperfection.
