Porcelain


A woman is seated on a small stool. She looks up with a startled expression at a person who is standing above her, and who is, at the same time, viewing the painting. The woman holds a plate in her hand, and we are not sure whether she wants to smash it to the ground, or if whe wants to save whatever can still be saved. Could it be that we are looking at a marriage drama? Around the woman, who is painted in sickly colours, we see pieces of porcelain, some already still intact, others already broken. The situation, the figure and the surroundings are viewed from a bird's eye view. The size of the painting is 100x80 cm and was painted in 2009 with acrylic paints.
