False Idols
Oil on Linen, 2017, 140 x 100 cm
This painting was a response to the global political situation, where I would rather follow a horse than most of our leaders.
Letting Go
Oil on Linen, 2016, 90 x 60 cm
I was raised in a very dysfunctional family, I regularly have to paint something that symbolises cutting off contact with them. This painting entitled “Letting Go” is one of those – it is like packing up all your baggage in a giant fur ball and then cutting that tie that connects you.
