Description

Mixed media on canvas. Ready to hang thanks to the stretcher frame and a wire. Original paining. Comes with a certificate. Part of my Corona-Stories: Tranquil Cities, Longing to go Outside. - BEING CREATIVE GIVES ME A FEELING OF BOUNDLESSNESS AND LIMITLESSNESS - Especially during the corona lockdown during the spring of 2020, it was very important to be able to experience this feeling of freedom. This painting is inspired by my own corona-diary. My thoughts about this period inspired me to use parts of the text in the city with sheet metal. The texts in the painting are not only about the surreal experience of the deserted streets in the normally crowded cities, but also about how strange it is when you suddenly lose your freedom. The freedom to go where you want, to visit whoever you want, whenever you want. The atmosphere and appearance of the artwork are, as with a real city, strongly influenced by the incidence of (sun) light. The sheet metal texts are difficult to capture in the photo. They are therefore not clearly visible on these photos. The changing incidence of light during the day ensures that the texts stand out more or less. This changes the painting during the course of the day.
