"In a niche in a wall I noticed a small bird. He sat there comfortably and occasionally hopped around. The image was pure and simple, but also fascinating. I sat there for half an hour, silently watching this bird in his tiny space in the wall.

Through this painting I want to capture this happy memory. This happy little bird however also makes me feel a bit melancholic. After all, he moves in a very narrow space that looks out onto a deserted landscape."
