ENCOUNTERS & Interventions 2015/2020

In 2015  I started a series of works in which I fantasized that people we know from paintings or history meet each other in (a sometimes intimate) relationship regardless of time and place. It started with Milkmaid who visited Japan and met Michiel de Ruyter or a black African King met Venus of the painting Botticelli. This lead to a second serie, Interventions.


In the series Interventions I look back at some old master paintings or old photographs from a 21th century point of view. I painted mostly women (in art).
