The Darwin project exists of two major themes. “The origin of species….” is one of them.

Here a detail of a new painting I’m working on. Only a small detail, approximately 15 by 30 cm. The whole painting is 80 x 120 cm.

Still al lot of work has to be done. Only worked on it three sessions. I’ll keep you posted!

Making art is a matter of doing and reflect on what you’ve done. For 90 percent I know what I am doing. But it’s all about that 10 percent. And when the “not knowing part” becomes to big, it’s totally out of control. And the result will be a very bad painting.

On the other hand, when I control everything I do for a full 100 percent, I’m not able to surprise myself (and “the audience”). And the painting will only be interesting for I short moment. You really have to take your time, when in front of my work. Get to know the painting. Explore it.

And the series is growing and growing. Probably in october, I will arrange a special exhibition in my studio, to show all the “Origin”paintings (eight are finished now).

I thought the title was well choosen. On the other hand; are my latest paintings really about the creation of the world, about life? Or is the theme more about a sort of putrefying and ephemerality? Just before everything dies, vanishes…… To capture that moment?

And does that matter? Or can the outcome, the paintings, be the same? Despite the different angles.

In the right corner below are three yellow organic forms.The top one is still bright. But the one at the bottom is already vanishing. Dying?
