About this artwork

For this work I was inspired by a photo from a newspaper. It was a happy photo of young people at a festival. Soft colors mute the image. My idea was to make a series of pictures painted in very smooth colors of images of the newspaper.
By painting them with oil color in very soft colours they become like timeless, mute. Even when the image is very dramatic and screaming, confronting.
