Oil paintings INSIDE 2021 OIL PAINTING ON CANVAS,SIZED 120 X 80 CM This painting is about the desire to get back amongst other people, while facing the reality of having to remain indoors.Even though you are not going anywhere, you feel the need to make yourself look pretty.This has an effect on the feeling inside. Can anyone look inside?The nostalgic notion of what once was and what will hopefully come again.Inspired by a beautiful design by Edwin Oudshoorn, as he is also very often inspired by the idea of caged beauty. RISING SUN 2017 OIL PAINTING ON CANVAS, SIZED 60 x 60 CM This abstract painting feeds into one of my other works; the painting ‘Inside’ (the girl in kimono).The painting was inspired by Japanese folding screens.The work is a visualization of how the rising morning sun instigates the clouds to evaporate on the side of the mountain. ASTRAEA 2018 OIL PAINTING ON CANVAS, SIZED 30 x 40 CM In this painting I was inspired by Greek mythology. The goddess Astraea is the personification of justice, deterred by the atrocities of the people. She chose to establish herself in heaven.In my painting it is about the hope that one day she will descend from the heavens and have faith again in the goodness of mankind. DANCING UNDERNEATH THE CHERRY BLOSSOM 2016 OIL PAINTING ON CANVAS, SIZED 30 x 40 CM The serenity of the ballerina inspired me to place her underneath the cherry blossom. This is the representation of pure enjoyment. She is swept up in a moment that is transitioning before her eyes, like the sunshine piercing trough the clouds creating a unique momentum UNCOVERED DANCE 2016 OIL PAINTING ON NATURAL LINNEN SIZED 70 X 100 CM In this painting both the nudity of the subjects as well as the choice to use solely two colors are meant to reveal the bare emotions between the two dancers.
