About the artwork N.T.
The lightness of being? The figure looks into nothing, it hangs on the feather. The light falls on the shoulder as if the day was beginning anew. The feather keeps him alive.

"My figures resemble letters. Several letters make a word, words form sentences and sentences weave a story. If you were to look at all my paintings side by side, they would make a narrative about human existence."
