Until 1999, I painted intensively on self-prepared and stretched canvas. Aka Regular Stretched Canvas (Museum Wrap). That means that 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 even in size. Partly intentionally. Partly because I painted on the canvases that I had ready. This also means that the canvases are not 100% even.
Marriage Road No. 1. shows Corry looking to the right of her. And Herman looking to the left of him. Both are close together in the painting. Yet both are busy with their thoughts. This first painting of the series has vertically a longer stretch. And it is the most “tall” painting of the series Mariage.
