A search for the Phoenix
oil and ecoline on canvas
150 cm x 100 cm
"During the Corona lockdown I experienced that you can handle any situation in two ways. Either you focus on the negative and you feel bad. Either you focus on the positive and learn to find even more joy in the small things.
We need to keep our distance, but I noticed that people have grown more open in their social contacts.
The white ribbon in the painting represents this renewed bonding between people, portrayed as weird creatures. Like the phoenix we seem reborn with a greater awareness of what is really important. Others however, like the orange figure, are afraid and stuck in old habbits."
