As from today you will find new images of paintings from 'Filled emptiness unique worlds' in My Art Worlds. All the paintings shown are made in 2013. Most of the paintings were made in Tunesia.
When you sit gazing into the distance, vacantly, contemplatively, lost within the environment, you come to realize how the landscape assumes the shape of a living presence, how its colours unfold in delicate and refined nuances, how the sun lights the surface of the waters in rose and golden hues, and fleeting emerald brightnesses reflect their sparkles in the bursting ripples.

Chased : My painting of the month June 2015.
This painting shows us the lamentable situation of Syrian refugees : women trying to save their child, their future. What can they do else? It is an heroique act , executed always again by women in history.

As from today you will find images of paintings from 'Works with a story' in My Art Worlds. All the paintings shown are made in 2010 and 2011.
With "Work with a story" I go regularly; perhaps related to contemporary events, submit a work from my collection, where I put the link to today's events.

More information about Marlene Dumas on ARTSY .
Seeing M. Dumas’ impressive art at her exhibition in the Stedeliijk Museum of Amsterdam, (and more reading about her art), for me related to the French expressionist Rouault both in the way of painting sometimes and of content.
Being a South-African, in her childhood she was certainly confronted with a world of ‘apartheid’ with brutality, racism, injustice , exploitation, where black people were not seen as equal human beings, a defenseless feeling must have gone through the unconscious and given birth to the sublime later. In her art we see the beauty of the ugly, the overwhelming.

As from today you will find new images of paintings from 'Brave New Old Worlds' in My Art Worlds. All the paintings shown are made in 2013, 2014 and 2015.
My works concerning this state of being were collected images garned from the very recent present, newspapers and magazines of the 21st century.
They are highly current, and at the same time very old. For what concerns their content, they belong with Goya, going back 200 years.
A comparison is inescapable, and frightening. What exactly is it that man has learned from the past? How far has his evolution carried him forward?

Escape or perish : My painting of the month May 2015.
This is a painting I already made in 2014. Today, almost a daily reality, it is a symbol of life itself , a struggle for life and hope.Without hope , even very risky, life is not livable.
