#Tag portraits 8 mixed media on heavy paper 32 x 50 cm 2018

#Tag Portraits – 2018.

A series of 13 works on paper

My visual comment on photo’s, taken by another artist, of all kind of victims. Deciding to make these portraits anonymous.  Looking now from a whole different perspective, one can also reverse the roles, ‘who is the victim and who is the perpetrator’.
A psychological game almost, intriguing.

This anonymity made me decide to transform these images back to who they might have been by concentrating on what I can detect and give them back a face.

To be named refugees as part of anonymous numerous groups that are wandering around in Europe and elsewhere around the world is one thing.
To be able to give these people a face is another.
This as an artist is my small contribution.
