In the past I’ve made a painting of flowers which grow into birds. While glancing past a painting hanging in my livingroom, ‘Fruit juice’ I decided to merge the two and create a tree with flowers which grow into birds. Between the time I started and finished the painting I went for a run and thought I saw a street covered in petals (since it’s early spring) and realised I were actually looking at feathers, most likely from a fight to the death and decided to paint the birds fighting. Since the road to peace isn’t a calm one.
This artwork is one of my hand-stretched ones, sold with hooks ready to hang and a certificate of authenticity.
