FACES BEHIND MASKS

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In HOLLANDS LANDSCHAP I used a number of well-known clichés. The clichés are the cunning Dutch face, the clog that has been transformed into a chilm, the mills have become windmills. The illusion of prosperity and peace prevails in this country. I symbolize that illusion with the inverted Christmas tree, bubbling up like smoke from the pipe. Everybody happy!

FACES BEHIND MASKS

Thinking is analyzing and interpreting, but also constantly talking within yourself. The inner murmur about everything from the past and how it could or should be and happen.
That is what you are for yourself.
Who you think you are.

Our true face is hidden behind the mask that we wear to hide our weaknesses, frustrations and sorrows.
In my paintings I look behind the face of the outside world, both of the individual and of the social.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

ME TOO: WOOZY KISS 
Woozy boss kisses subordinate during
at company outing.
He kisses her horny on her mouth,
she undergoes it submissively,
and vomits out of disgust.

JAPANESE SOCIETY
This painting consists of two faces that look at each other in profile.
On the left the man, on the right the woman. Together they form a face. The face expresses the work mentality of Japanese society.

 BRAIN PAIN

In this painting, a grinding wheel rotates through the brain of the person in the middle.
Blood flows out.
This event symbolizes the pain, anger, sadness and misery of life, as experienced by the screaming face (based on EdvardMunch) at the bottom right.

 THE THERAPIST PATIENT

Here it is about the bare-naked reality of existence. The therapist (right) and the patient (left) are the same person.
Behind the therapist’s mask is a hidden world of panic and fear.
