While painting I was listening to the radio. Horrible news on war crimes committed in the Ukraine, I thought of how hard it seems for us, peoples, to live by the principle of mutual symbiosis.

Fear and greed of the ones in power keeps us divided. I understand politics may require influencing the public sometimes, if a greater good is to be achieved. In a democracy we’ve decided that an elected group of people will decide on complex matter for us; e.g. the transition to sustainable energy.

But if too much power comes in the hands of one person, that person’s fear and greed often become dominant in decision making and ultimately things tend to go wrong. Leading to extreme wealth for the few and deficiency for the rest, human suffering up till pointless death … of others. In order to maintain their power, autocrats and dictators (as well as many democratically elected, I fear) find ways to get, and keep, us divided.  

I like to look at the beautiful mutual symbiosis in nature, like between the shark and remora. The remora feeds off of parasites on the shark’s skin and in its mouth, while it is protected by the shark from predators and gets free transportation through the oceans.

It is the thought of this kind of beauty in nature that offers me compensation for the daily sad news on the radio and that inspires me to create vivid colourful art, like this painting.

At the same time, this work of art is a Statement against war and created dividing of people.

Mixed media on wood panel, 186cm x 52cm x 4cm.
