Lockdown began in March, so naturally many things were cancelled including an exhibition, which was to be held un June. I have done some work on a small book for spring 2020 about various spring traditions and rites in Europe. I also painted a few spring themed pictures and right now I´m working on drawings and paintings for a client, a children´s book and continue painting for the exhibition in Rumlange next year.
I´m interested in exploring anthropromorphism so there are a few creepy cherub faces within the flowers. A contrast exists between straight lines and curves, modern and old, and the grey skyscrapers in the background are a pointer to the present and the future. The poem written on the left is by JRR Tolkein called Bilbo´s Last Song. Thought it might be interesting to make the wall feel delicate like paper and yet strong at the same time. The idea as a whole is about change and how the present and the past are closer than we like to think.
