In this series, love and trust are expressed in the theme as well as in the method.


The theme, Man with Cat, shows the deep and unconditional love that people feel towards their pets. This connection to animals is part of our connection to nature and helps us become better human beings. Here, the powerful and muscular man has the capacity to great tenderness. Strength and compassion combine.


The method, Flow Painting, activates feelings, allowing for a subjective interpretation. The painter trusts the unfolding of the material to provide an unexpected dimension. The randomly flowing paint opens aspects of the relationship between the man and the cat that are only visible to the naked eye.
