The Robot and the Butterfly

Written on 05 Aug 2018

On a dark dramatic background, a slender robot delicately holds a butterfly in his hand.

During a (very interesting) tour in the Bonnefanten museum in Maastricht I got the inspiration to make this painting. For me it is about the constrast between the simple trust and feeling of safety of the butterfly and the curiousity of the robot and the seeming care it has for the animal.

Paintings after all are just stories told with a single moment.
