Inspired by genitals of wood

Detail of painting with the object found in the forest

I found them on one of my many walks through the woods in the east of Holland near a place called Ommen. It looked like something familiar that reminded me of  a dear friend. And since it has everything to do with friendship I thought I might as well use it as a metaphor for friendship. I mounted a piece of denim on the canvas and prepared the textile with oil paint. Finally I mounted the piece of wood on the canvas and wrote 'fuck em all' as a victory cry to the work. Words that expressed the freedom of speech of my friend Harry.

 who now is the proud owner of the artwork.
