Fragments of Reality

In the summer of 2021 I undertook a research of the reflection, movement and rhythm on large water surfaces. I made sketches on location on beaches and lakes, and created these new works on canvas in my studio based on my observations.

During these observations, there are moments that I experience as ‘magical’. The energy of such magical moments inspired me in creating these new works.

‘The surface of things gives delight, their inwardness gives life”
Piet Mondrian, Notebooks 1912-14
