about for a drop of water


This series is a sequel to the painting for the waters ( also background image of this page). I made this work as part of the series simplicity of cynicism in 2017. Which arose as a response to a number of social-political and economical issues.

The painting for the waters had global water scarcity as its starting point. Corona and the dry summer in the middle of the summer led me back to this work and the crushed simplicity and cynicism behind it.

From that thinking I started wiht this series for a drop of water in August/September 2020. For which I chose three approaches: drops in the air, drops above the ground and drops on the ground.

Each work is painted on a monochrome or a monochrome contaminated surface. With that, perhaps simplistically, shaping the cynicism and, not impossible, my own ridicule.
