Pinching and kneading in wax, I’m looking for a portrait that shows me something that interests me. When I reach a dead end I have to find a way out. In this case I squeezed the wax so hard that it poured out between my fingers. The somewhat dull head transformed into a prince, Prince Carnival, a dutch character, leader of the carnival celebrations. A prince in a world where it doesn’t matter who or what you are.
