With this artwork I want to refer to Carnaval. Carnaval goes way back in time. I reflect this through the depth in the artwork. Carnaval originated once as a community fest where food and drinks were the central theme. Still at present food and drinks are linked to Carnaval in various countries and cultures. In the current society it is important to have a getaway to relaxation. The stress and continuous pressure from the volatile rhythm of life is very high nowadays. You can interpret the tunnel in the artwork as an escape from the present situation. Once a year we enthusiastically make use of the freedom and the rollplay to be someone else. The farmer becomes king, and the managing director becomes clown. From Europe over America to Russia people celebrate Carnaval. In this work, I have used the colors red, yellow and green typical of the Rhineland carnival. After the festivities, the fasting period approaches, which calls for sobriety and reflection. These are the themes of my unique artwork for March 2017: “Mother Earth : the punishment”.
