FAKE YOU!

I made this iPad portrait a few months after Trump announced candidacy for the presidency of the United States of America. I could not imagine that many people would vote for him. I saw a television interview in which he did not substantiate his opinions with any argument. He based his feelings on world politics, in his own words, mainly on the information he received from television.

I had known his artificial hairstyle for a long time. But during that television interview I noticed for the first time that the orange color of his face becomes paler around his eyes. You would think it is caused by wearing a protection cover for his eyes at the solarium or in the spray tan booth. However, there are rumors in the White House that the President is not doing anything about his skin color. It is all genetically determined.

This portrait will be on display in the Haagse Kunstkring as part of a member presentation with the theme Portrait. The opening is on April 6 at 4 p.m. Everybody is welcome.

Exhibition ‘Almas Cruzados’

Tomorrow May 31 the exhibition ‘Almas Cruzados’ by Carlos Simões Ferreira and me in Galeria Kulungwana, Maputo opens until 29 June. Together in his open-air studio a few kilometers outside of Maputo we worked on four paintings as two souls from a different world. These works are on show at the exhibitions. Furthermore, the exhibition consists of new work that we have made individually.
I spent a lot of time in the Simões studio. Many people came along. I experienced the African way of life and I became part of the family. After 20 years in Africa, I have discovered that art is mainly about dreams and fantasy, the discovery of the inner world, and not, as in my own tradition, which is based on perception. It is a privilege that Simões helped me to understand this African perspective better.
