Yohannez Jacobs

Gaia

Gaia

Material: Oil paint on wood
Size: 25 x 31 cm

Gaia is the goddess of nature and the earth she protects. Even as she herself is increasingly threatened. This work shows both her motherly love and her vulnerability.
Yohannez is a painter from the Betuwe (NL). From his studio in Beusichem he paints according to classical realistic oil painting technique. In his esoteric hand portraits and also in his other work he depicts paradoxical combinations, mix-ups and metaphors. Sometimes there is a deeper message. Sometimes the message is subordinate to the form. From 2012 Yohannez has been painting after a model. This has resulted in many works. Before that he has painted several other series including the portrait series Victus Manus where the accent lies entirely on "hands".
