Canvas

Work in progress: Heart. The painting that will never be finished. Or so I like to think.

Oh well. I put my heart on the map, or rather vice versa. And it got a little to white-ish. I intended it a little more transparent. But hey, who cares. The operation, which I thought would take me all day was cut short when I decided to do it on the floor anyway, it was so much easier but hard on those sclerotic legs albeit healthy for them I suppose. Rendered some shadow parts in the heart a little darker too. Next step is finalizing the outline on the heart before applying the next map on top of everything else. Lot of thoughts on that one too: do it in colored but thinner outlines? Multicolored? Do it with posca pens? Hm. We’ll see. It’s good to be working again.

RAT - 2009, 150 x 100 cm

For now a few select productions to start with. Find the gallery in the MORE menu to the right. Will update as progress happens. In other words: not so often.

Inspired by some roadkill I came across one day while getting lost on my bike, almost squashing through the fresh corpse of a fat grey rat, its pose or rather rigor mortem almost as depicted here giving away a sense of loss but also relief, the mix of impressions talked to me and my memory enough to stay and be put to canvas. The scissors? Have no idea. Looked long and hard for an addition to the rat before this candidate stuck or should I say, cut loose?
