learning to swim
In March 2020 Corona hit the Netherlands like it had a lot of countries before us. Life changed for everyone. Like many artists I struggled with the meaning or usefulness of art at this moment in history. But art is my way of living, my life force, so I have to go on making art, whether it is of any use or not. My art usually expresses feelings I’m going through at that very moment. And so it happened that the things that I made the first weeks of the crisis were mostly about Corona. I hope that my art is of any consolation to whoever needs it.
Learning to swim is about not letting ourselves getting overwhelmed by fear and therby get paralyzed. Instead of that we can learn how to handle difficult situations.
