looking for the Virgin Mary I found the Earth

The new surprising body of work appeared as I was preparing an exhibition devoted to the Virgin Mary in the Cistercian Abbey of Orval. Reflecting on the spirituality of Mary and beholding the earth in Orval a new form of painting was born: a symbolic spiritual landscape.

Each piece is an moment of the earth striving for grace and receiving it. The Earth is here symbolic for the Virgin Mary, the monastic way of life and the soul each person.
