All pieces of my seven-part series of “levensdingen” (life episodes) represent universal experiences during the life of a human being: love, hatred, joy, sorrow, friendship, animosity, fear, security, victory, defeat life and death.The pictures are painted with strong contrasts as vigorous brushstrokes in sober colors work to depict strong emotions. The skin is rendered vulnerable, soft, and transparant. The fierce red hair stands for passion, for survival instinct. The large scale of the pieces make it impossible to deny the inescapable facts of life they describe.
