2021 A touch of yellow

Material: Acrylic paint on canvas
Size: 120 cm x 100 cm cm

In 2020 I made a series of 4 paintings to express the sad, isolated Covid-period of that year in shape and colour. This painting is one of the two paintings made in 2021; The next step in this project; Using only grey and yellow; Breaking the past pattern of squares and isolation by caring love and a touch of brightening yellow. Limited use of colour; Soothing and calming. Grey for the past, sad period; A touch of yellow ('touch' meaning 'touch' as well as 'little bit') indicating new hope and new ways.
