Maria F.R. Scherf

Icon 2020, Ecce Homo

Material: Oil paint on wood
Size: 60 cm x 120 cm cm

Made in times of Corona. A modern icon; golden aureool is dripping, the face is broken, despair.... Still Christus Pantocrator?
Born, raised, studied and grown in Amsterdam, lived there untill 3 years ago when my husband and I moved to Schoorl, a little village near the sea in Noord-Holland. Amongst many other things I studied Art Therapy, and after that I learned many painting en drawing techniques while working with different artists in Amsterdam. I am lucky now to have my own studio in Schoorl, where I give art lessons, also on the beach or in the woods or dunes, and make my paintings and drawings. I'm always looking for what's behind the visible world, Music, silence, freedom, contact with other artists are necessary to develop and keep on learning and searching. I keep on wandering, like a nomad, and that is my style of living and working.
