My painting refers to a Japanese myth that appears as a legend in the whole of East Asia and has its origins in China: The Red Thread of Fate. The red thread of fate connects two people who are destined to meet. The thread is invisible and indestructible: a special bond which can not be broken, regardless of place, time and circumstances. This connection will be given concrete form through an encounter.
This painting forms the first painting in a series on Japanese mythology. I am happy to show it at Krugerkamer, a warm place created by Wendy and Bas where all kind of people come together. They host a pop-up bakery, ice cream shop and other events, and the space is also for rent for individuals or companies to organize their own gatherings. At Krugerkamer I was able to experience such an encounter myself.
