Olieverf op Doek (katoen) 60 x 80 cm

The painting depicts the “Markt” (marketplace) in the town of Deurne, in a quasi-realistic manner, while the Mediterranean character is illusory. Everything revolves around Liesbeth in our early years (1970), the girl of my dreams; unreachable, back then, or ever … ?

Instead of being a mere collection of individuals, a group of people should be a coherent set, so I looked for examples! Past and present occur simultaneously, making us reconcile what is chronologically irreconcilable.
