acrylic on linen, 30 x 20, 2015

The artist works in different techniques: black and white linocuts alternates with gray pencil and color of acrylic or oil paint. The male figure as subject is the connection. In booklets he combines linocuts with poems by, amongst them K. P. Cavafy and Jacob Israel de Haan.
The final piece is fixed: a body in decay, as a contrast to the (still) unaffected ideals.
