My UBUNTU collection is inspired by the philosophy of Nelson Mandela. The South African wisdom that we are all connected: WE is more than I. For this series I went on a journey with my brushes. The emphasis is on so many beautiful, different people living together in one world. In the 'I' era in which we now live, I think it is important to show how beautiful WE are. Geisha is painted with oil paint and acrylic over parchment paper. The combination of material and color accentuate the fragile but also the strong character of the traditional Japanese companion.
