On your face
On your face - Year of execution: 2019 Size: 80x64 cm
When I make art I try to visualise the energy of the model. I try to shake off my ego. And work with the energy of the person I’m photographing. The result of the artwork is also a surprise for me. It gives me the possibility to feel what the person in front of me is feeling.
In this case the model is a very happy, enthusiastic and bright woman. She reminded me of the song ‘On your face,’ by the legendary band Earth, Wind & Fire. The first lines of the song are: Ain’t it funny how the way you feel shows on your face. So, what you see is what the model felt like. Thus the name of the artwork: On your face.
A big inspiration for most of my artworks is music. The kind of music which we use to feel better. To do better. And to make our world a better place.
