Description

Contrast

In 1997 I was concerned with observing people. And for myself trying to place them and then to let them determine naturally the fate that I now belonged to. The experimenting was over and I had to rethink my life. Which is still an ongoing process. Whoever came my way, I would happily hang out with them for a while without judging them. At the time of this painting, I knew Patrick (from my time of flowing out of the party & drugs scene, and on the one hand I got to know, Mara.

 

Shoes

They were completely different from each other in everything. But it was precisely this diversity in the people I interacted with that I needed. Mara intrigued me with her full red lips and jet black hair, she was a bit of an enigma to me. And Patrick reminded me of my old life that I had said goodbye. In the end, I think that I have completely crystallized them in my mind and that I was looking for habits and actions that could identify them. I went so far as to trace their characters back to the shoes they wore. When I looked at the shoes of people I thought that I could estimate the person in them. Well, who says I’m wrong.
