THE ANCESTORs WALL ...... at first.. it looks chaotic. it IS chaotic i guess... and yet if you give it some time.. and look.. unfocussed.. just let your eyes drift over the image.. you will stop here.. and there.. and see. figures.. shapes .. animals.. humans .. bodyparts .. there are hieroglyphs and there are various styles to be found in this one image. why? i wondered.. thought about it.. no wonder really.. my family, my history is chaotic.. moving around, my family moving from country to country, east meets west, west meets east.. living here, living there. am i rootless? no. i have air-roots.. my roots are like bridges, connecting and touching the ground wherever i have lived, where my ancestors have lived.. going deep, getting nourished, drinking on different cultures and transporting this nourishment to my subconscious.. inspiring me. small wonder my styles change rapidly.. small wonder i dont stick to one... the influences are there.. inside of me.. the roots hold fast, anchoring me here and there.. i belong to the world.. .. i look at my ANCESTORs WALL and feel.. yes.. that is my history.
