Inside 2021 Oil painting in canvas Sized 120 x 80 cm This painting is about the desire to get back amongst other people, while facing the reality of having to remain indoors. Even though you are not going anywhere, you feel the need to make yourself look pretty. This has an effect on the feeling inside. Can anyone look inside? The nostalgic notion of what once was and what will hopefully come again. Inspired by a beautiful design by Edwin Oudshoorn, as he is also very often inspired by the idea of caged beauty.
