triptych, each panel 90 x 85 cm
I answered an ad promising a free IKEA desk top. The eyes of the Woman who answered the door were ringed in dark purple-reds. She was carrying a baby phone. The sketch to this painting followed soon thereafter. It was not a conscious process.
Then, while working on the painting an older Woman told me about her earliest memory: it was night, the sky was all lit up and her mother was pushing her in a stroller, running through the woods. She remembers the bombing as something that was fun.
