Time Trap, 2019

The series Time Trap consists of seven paintings in mixed media. A found vintage photograph is cut and combined with a new painting, some of the paint even slips on top of the photo. Memories, lost and grey, are taken over by colour and new life. What will remain of our precious lives in time to come?

The series is illustrated with a poem by Delmore Schwartz (USA).

Calmly we walk through this April’s day

What will become of you and me

Besides the photo and the memory

Time is the school in which we learn

Time is the fire in which we burn

What am I now that I was then?
