Artwork Description:

As an artist and a person, I have always been fascinated by the sea. I’ve been diving for years, and I also live by the sea, the sea is an essential part of my life: the sea and men, the waves and women.

I wanted to portray the wishes and dreams of a man (myself?), but when cutting linoleum, the picture seemed far too masculine. I tried a black and white print and realized that it lacked something. I opened the pink and yellow colour tube and discovered that gradient colour transitions and warm tones added a feminine side to the artwork. With these colours, it is now my wife’s favourite artwork.
