In the foreground, you can see a painter (me) in front of an empty white canvas on an easel. On the painter‘s canvas there are absolutelly no colors – only the white of the gesso – so the painting is everywhere on the surface of the real painting except the ‘’painted‘‘ canvas. I used the emptyness as a symbol of our global behavior. The scene is situated on the roof of my old studio from where I had a view to a large billboard.
The painting originated from a mixture of several sketches and photos which I transformed into a new composition.
