THE DARK ROAD.

Updated: Apr 20





MEDIUM INK on paper SIZE 11 x 7 cm


I love it when my work puts people in a positive mood. There is enough misery in the world already. At the same time, work always chooses its own way.




Just to give an example. A friend of mine characterised this work with the following title:

'The dark road via coffee to a burn-out'

Just to say.... That's something I hadn't thought of in the first place.

But apparently, that's how it can go.

For me, this work typifies my penchant for simplicity and respect for (white) space.

Closeness

Incidentally, this is a wonderful illustration of what abstract art can do. It turns you inwards and stirs up images and emotions.

I sometimes say: ‘abstract art is figurative for emotions’. That is why I love these two art forms so much. They interact and provide a fertile ground.

The two touch each other in my desire to evoke closeness with my work, whether it concerns a person, an animal or an emotion.
