2010 The Ring

The Ring (2010)
Delft blue plate with grapes, Delft blue vase, tulips, magpie and treasure box.
Oil paint on masonite; 60,5 x 80 cm.

What a wealth is the existence, in a profusion of sweet grapes and jewelery.
In this painting it's all about the ring, which is the symbol of connectedness
between present, past, future, men and women, animals and humans.

Mice and insects are tolerated by the magpie ... as the symbol of the multicultural esprit of the city of Delft.
A richly decorated Delft blue plate represents the cultural heyday that Delft ever experienced...
The tulips casually present and not yet grown. The love of all is in the ring, a symbol of fidelity.
