Until 1999, I painted on self-prepared and stretched canvas. Aka Regular Stretched Canvas (Museum Wrap). All the paintings in this series are 100% handmade. From the production of the canvases to the actual paintings. This also means that the works are not 100% even in size.
Chris (From the Series Uitspraken (Dutch for Pronunciations)
Chris, Fou Fou and Linda come from the same friends-group. I made Chris orange since he was a redhead with kind eyes. Later Fou Fou and he got a child together. But this I did not know during the making of this painting. His pronunciation is: I don’t want to be a dealer anymore, but it makes such an easy living, doesn’t it?! (Dutch: Ik wil geen dealer meer zijn maar het verdient zo makkelijk he?!).
