Contemporary Fresco’s and large works
I have worked at this project from 2013 till now. My fresco’s tell a story, not a story of a single person, but a story of our world. Our old world and our new world, blended together. It was a lot of work to create them, but only with love for our world, fresco’s, photography and photoshop I was able to re-create the glory of old fresco’s again…
All is photographed and processed by myself (models, surrounding, background, animals, accesoires etc) I want the complete work to exist from my hands and mind. Creating fresco’s are time consuming, it takes about more than a year to create to about a half year. I’m not working in a team, I create alone and all is done by myself.
“In my fresco’s, you can see chaos, melancholy, death and also love asks its sacrifices in most of my fresco’s. That’s what we see with our eyes. In reality, you see the reflection of eternal struggle. (For example: In soulcollector – refugees exploited and Xenophobia speaks for itself…). It’s the battle of life itself, our life, right at this moment – the difficulties in our contemporary life expressed in old masters frescoes.
In the middle of this chaos, in this massive entanglement, there seems to be no solution, hopelessness. No prospects.
But, by placing the viewer outside of the framework of the fresco, another different perspective exist. A perspective which enables us to find tools, right in the middle of this hopelessness.
We find tools to let life win back its territory.
