Artist's description:

Lying on the beach I was thinking of a previous commission, which finally took me where I was now. I had painted a series of pictures of ruins and then I realized that it was fairly absurd to paint a ruin, as none of the pictures gave me the feeling that I had finished it. I would have preferred to paint a reconstruction of the original, undamaged building. In principle, painting as a commission is frustrating, because adjusting to other people’s ideas goes against my understanding of painting. To conciliate this conflict I have to paint another, free pictures as well. Back then it was an architectural detail, a detached open archway in this ruin, through which nothing but the sky could be seen. This was the picture which the client finally chose. I then continued and completed the first customized version, which had stayed with me, until it suited my present.
