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.
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.
