Margreet Blaas

Even the seashell knows i am a mermaid

Material: Oil on canvas
Size: 100 x 100 cm

The painting of innocence and youth emerged from a subconscious- conscious memory and imagination triggered by an antique photograph. This painting revolves around a child and portrays a dream world of magic potential- not the recognizable reality. My personal process reduced the idea to its core and puts it into a world of marks and color conveying emotional idealism. The result is a mythic interpretation. The viewer becomes part of my world , the painting becomes a part of the viewers as well.
