    Traveler's Desk

    Through the symbols in "Traveler's Desk" the painting depicts man’s yearning for knowledge. The knowledge yet to be discovered (symbolized by the closed books) is obtained by travelling (indicated by the globe). This desk tells the story of a dreamer curious to learn true his travels (curiosity depicted by the squirrel that they've brought from overseas, as this type of rodent’s habitats are not found in Europe).

    You can also find that this person is interested in foreign cultures, hence he has received a letter with haiku, a type of traditional Japanese poetry. In this context, the scales stand for a reminder that knowledge is more valuable than material riches.

Artist statement

My work opposes the fast-paced consumerism and stressed ways of the society nowadays. It pays its respect to art history and it shows how much we can learn from our past in order to live and create to our fullest now. My work suggests, in the way it's painted, that you can also choose how paint/live your life accordingly to what you truly crave, despite what the current fashion is.

The knowledge of the materials used and the chemical reactions towards their surroundings has been applied to create these works of art, which will last in time.
