Over balans

Material: Oil and acrylics on canvas
Size: 270 x 90 cm

This painting ‘over balans’ 90 x 270 cm is as the title implies on the topic of balance... now at the turning of the tide we see an albino hammerhead navigating thru manmade shackles and like ying and yang his dark counter part is circling back. This is about balance in nature and equilibrium between animals and men.... about freedom and unfolding and how we simply can’t control anything It is an important painting for me because l created it now in this time of uncertainty, of not knowing how the scales are tipping. This year 2020 with both BLM and the COVID 19 pandemic l am adressing these global issues as a distant observer ..but like in all my works, in deep awe of the force of nature, the magic of water and the questionable traces of human interferences.
