Bless 8

2012 – Oil on paper – 36 x 55 cm (14.4 x 21.7 in)

The face of a young woman, her hair still damp from the bath, is wrapped in a shimmering cloak of deep red. Huge, bright eyes and sensual lips show her beauty, but also her vulnerability – there are wounds on the young woman’s forehead and below her collarbone.


She gazes deeply into the void – or into another, better world? Involuntarily, one feels reminded of depictions of the Madonna and saints in Christian art. The deep red of the cape in Christian symbolism stands for love and passion, but also for blood and sacrifice.
