THE STORM

THE STORM

 

 

I started The Storm series in 2019 to shape my sense of unease and urgency about our changing climate.

Storm means tension, change and discharge.

You can see a storm as a natural phenomenon, but also as a more common phenomenon of our changing climate. There are indications that they will occur more often in extreme forms on our continent. You can also see it as a reference to a changing Europe.

Or as a sudden event in your life.

In the small paintings I investigate whether I can depict the calms of storms as a metaphor for the climate problem: the calm before the storm, the eye of the storm and the calm after the storm. In some of them I want these phases to merge.
