Grethe on the beach

Patmos, 1999
Oil on canvas, 160x100 cm

Bend down!

If you reach the soil
the cloud banks may well roll and thunder
over the firmament!

Your hands have so much to grasp
your body can be so heavy
your spirit is meat and stone
Job could have been your name
if you weren’t

Now it’s your fight

Tough and sustainable
you spit into the face
of The Almighty!
