Acrylic on cradled panel board, 20x20cm
From the Series „EVEN CLOSER THAN FAR“
Out of all countries visited Portugal is my favorite: it’s simply the most accepting of melancholic feelings.
This series of small panels was inspired by the walls of the Algarve region, mainly Olhão, a small fishing town a short drive from Faro but a long enough drive from mainstream tourism.
You can tell Olhão has seen better days and probably not benefited from sunseekers as much as the rest of the coast - which gives it a rather unique feel. It feels slightly rougher than its neighbours and a bit more real in its existence.
