A Sleeping Passenger - 1968 (75x55cm)

A Sleeping Passenger

The painting is dominated by the typically reserved colourfulness characteristic of the late 60s. A shadow of transience is looming over everything, possibly implying the inadequacy of all creations. The painting is nevertheless marked by dignity, and has taken a firm attitude to what is commonly described as readiness for fate. This attitude developed into a mature image. There is an all-powerful sensation of weight and suffering without any lemantation: just readiness to be as it is. This brings about an exceptional peace, a peace full of weight and even sadness; a peace filled with commitment, and eventually a peace rich in dignity - an element of its beauty.
