This painting has gone through several stages. As it hung in my room, I was dissatisfied and started to work on it again. It became darker and darker, until there was only a small window visible and again I was not satisfied, until I took it again to my studio and made this last version, in which I gave expression of a deep compassion with this rapidly changing world. The window and the cross are themes that frequently return in my work. The window because it gives already a view upon a white canvas to project, a border as frontier between inside and outside, the visible and the invisible world.
The cross with the vertical line : LIGHT and the horizontal line: DARKNESS.
