The triptych WHOLEHEARTEDNESS is part of a VISUAL ART INSTALLATION which presents my reality, in a stylized manner, using abstraction to give shape to my vision.

ESCAPISM – CONNECTION – AUTHENTICITY
ESCAPISM is about isolating yourself from everything around you, the loneliness, the worthlessness and the insanity that comes with it. The urge to run away, to flee and probably never come back.

CONNECTION The Quote of Brene Brown is the heart of this theme: “The ability to feel connected is the reason why we are here.” The power of love, to accept yourself the way you are and feelings of profound connection that go intense deep. Without these connections a struggle for dignity, a quest for purpose and meaning arise.

AUTHENTICITY is about selfacceptance, loving yourself and showing and giving that to the world. Freedom to be your real self, to fully embrace your vulnerability, to see your mistakes as moments of learning and especially the art of letting go. Let go and trust, infinite trust and keeping hope. It’s about the realisation that thoughts create your life and that what you pay attention to will grow. It’s about being aware of yourself, your spirit and so find peace.
