Animals are Wild
I am fascinated by wild animals, how they walk, look, the instinct and the wisdom they have. It is frightening that some animals are threatened. I pay tribute to animals in a series of paintings. Not in a literal, realistic way, but I give a personal interpretation. I show the feeling, pleasure and versatility that the animals give me through my own 'instinct': painting with smooth brush strokes and special color combinations. The thick, frayed white outlines are characteristic in these series and not only have an aesthetic and graphic character. The animals are vulnerable and through the painted white lines I give them a protection, an aura of hope.
