Milkmaid and Michiel de Ruyter in Japan.

This work started the series Encounters. 

A series of 18 works
2015-2017
size: 150 x 150 cm and 100 x 100 cm

In this series, started in 2015, famous and unknown people meet each other in an intimate relationship regardless of time and place. 
A modest and sometimes rather funny way to ‘redesign’ the view of history. During the making of these paintings I noticed the fact that quoting is role reinforcing…

In other words only well known people or images can be quoted, it can still result into unexpected images.
