Play is Essential

150x50x2cm, Acrylic on linen canvas and a wooden frame.

Entirely inspired on the music of Margin Alexander, a pianist and composer from New York who I have met in Amsterdam during one his concerts. Moved to tears by his play and the magic of his compositions in combination with the beautiful venue I locked myself in my studio when back home with his music on repeat. For weeks I have been working on this piece, very focused on every next move or brush stroke. Out came this piece that shows it is important to stay connected to your roots. To honour your ancestors and celebrate your culture. To honour your inner self. Play! It will make you happier. Thank me later.
