Circles, late 90s

Oil on Canvis Removed from Frame,
50 x 50 cm, Circlish shape, horizontal and vertical. It seems Easter-like, but in fact, I was exploring horizontal and vertical lines, which indeed make a cross. I never had a thoughts or feelings about Christianity around any of my work. Admittedly, I was unconsciously influenced by the society I grew up in. In protestant churches, there were no human representations, only an empty cross, flowers, cloths and the altar.
