The Alchemist . 2014
Life is a combination of actions, reactions and unexpected surprises. Some things you can plan, while other things just happen.
This series of small and medium size mixed media textured paintings explores this interplay of life. While colors and the use of materials are planned, the way they react to each other is unpredictable. It’s pure alchemy at its best.
Every painting has it’s own unique character with endless possibilities. Just like life.
This series of paintings is also based on the book “The Alchemist” by Paulo Coelho. The artworks are my depiction of Santiago’s journey, which I strongly identify with. Not only because he is perusing his dreams but for the alchemy itself which I use in my work. Welcome to our journey!
