Bij nader inzien / Looking back with regret

  • 2000
  • Bronze

If you see this sculpture, you are not drawn towards it instantly. The wronged posture, a mix of sadness, anger and being side-lined. It seems to me to be the expression of the populist voter today. When he sees this image, it makes him furious, and he thinks artists are guzzlers for grants. While it is a good portrait, shows exactly what it is. Trapped in grief and therefore closed from inspiration. Look at it and feel what your reaction is.
