Saint John Longing for Paradise

2019 / Oil on linen / 120 x 75 x 2,5 cm

‘The painting is like a travel of the spirit of Saint John to Paradise through the landscape of the island Patmos (Greece). Heaven is crying and is letting Saint John shine along his way.

I like the idea that the trees are sort of two different characters as a Ying-Yang which accompany his spirit along the way. The left dark, passionate and loud, the right transparant, light, gentle and silent.’
