Letter to the Future

With the series "A Letter to the Future," I bring special people back into the spotlight. People, who in the past have fought for the good, or who have become a symbol of what should never happen again. Unfortunately, violent events from the past do not endure. Time and again we are confronted with the dramatic consequences of genocide, racism, famine and wars.

Even though time is yellowing, this series of paintings is a message to the future with the knowledge of the past....

My second painting in this series is Mahatma Ghandi, the man of connection, nonviolence and reconciliation.
