Scars of Silence

2019 / Oil on linen / 140 x 200 x 2,5 cm

‘It must have felt as living in an inner open wound when St. John received his visions in total silence.
I tried to paint the cave as an open texture (skin) with scars from the past and present, as looking through the pain of history.

The cave is also used as a metaphor for the soul in this work, as a save place where you can look to the world in silence. The soul painted as the light, in the absence of the body, of the ‘I’, becoming the light and waking up the light inside you.’
