Artist's description:

Sans titre – 01-05-18

This is the first art statement on a drawing I wrote before completing it. It is time to express my dissatisfaction with today’s modern art. Having visited galleries and museums from early childhood on and seeing it all, I also am a son of a carpenter and skills and crafts were and still are very important in my family. It is from this perspective that I always have seen and valued art all around me. I strongly believe in the ethymological sense of the word ‘art’, meaning ‘skill as a result of learning or practise’. Therefor I turned to Vermeer and tried my skills on this old master. I took a newer and even greater model though: Scarlett Johansson, posing in the movie ‘the Girl with the Pearl Earring’. A reference to old masters is great but these are modern times.
