Fur coat on a T-bone steak
oil and ecoline on canvas
120 cm x 80 cm
"Being a vegetarian I find it absurd to name a piece of meat (or better, a part of an animal): T-bone steak, beef, entrecote. The animal becomes a product and is no longer seen as a living being with feelings. As a child we felt compassion for all animals. They featured in children’s stories and we loved them. Now as an adult, we only love animals we can cuddle.
We don’t think about it anymore and consider the animal as a product to survive or as luxuries.
On this painting you see a bull wearing a fur coat. The fur coat is presented as a human like creature.
The stairs that lead up refer to people that have elevated the fur coat to a symbol of status symbol."
