I’m still working on my exhibition on the subject of Covid-19 and have now started a few works that are not so abstract. Symbolism, archetypal elements, and an often stronger emphasis on the painterly are again in the foreground.
This is also the case with this picture Out of the Blues into the Blue: An old man (who by chance also looks very similar to me) leaves his cave, turning his back on the world. His clothing can be the fur of a caveman as well as that of a monk. Ballast is pushed aside and clears the way to the blue of the sea and the sky.
Perhaps the picture is a little too melodramatic, but a good mood is powerful in its own way.
