I used to live in Bali for 5 months in 2013–2014. I was much inspired by Ari Smit's and Paul Husner's paintings of the village Ubud, which was my home-town for that time. While living in Bali, I made sketches, which I used later on for my paintings.
This work is called Made. Made was my landlord, every day she used to come for ceremonies to the place I lived. I loved the way she was dressed and enjoyed the ritual of cleaning her (my) beautiful garden. I was very much inspires by the colors of balenese fabrics.
