I enjoy living in Brussels, it is a cosmopolitan city with a good quality of life.

However, Brussels for me is, unfortunately, also connected with the terrorist attacks in Paris, Brussels and Germany. The emotions I lived through during those times, confusion, anger, despair, sadness, mourning, cumulate in the painting "Gedanken über den Tod" which means "thoughts about death".

The paintings I did during those months are in some way all connected to these emotions.

Luckily, in the end my optimism always comes back, just like the beautiful blue sky in Brussels.
