  • Our Father

    2011

    I took this detail from a picture of a girl, so you just see the dress, the skirt infact, that stands for femininity, and her naked knees who refers to a girl, not a woman. And I named this painting Our Father, the beginning of this allknown prayer, ...a prayer for the seducer and a prayer for all who are quilty on childabuse, these days. (my reaction with this painting I guess...)   oil on canvas, 90 x 130 cm   I made it to the 128 finalists with this painting on Saatchi's Online Showdown Art Paris 2011.

  • detail of the painting "before it's all dark (the promenade)"

  • an image of the french photographer Charles Fréger inspired me to paint this portrait of a girl. I took the title "innocence" for this painting, a little thin slim girl who wanted to go swimming, but the water seems to be a dark dirty mud bath, such as the way some animals, especially birds, can no longer follow their instincts and do what their nature tell them to be, because we made a mess of their environment and turned it into an oilbath, that turned into their deathbed... and they died an innocence death... oil on canvas,
    60 x 70 cm
