Story SHOW HOPE : I have tried to find out what is harsh. I have seen the pain. Using children as soldiers is horrible. In this painting you can see the differences between the old, inflaxible, hard and dark, expressed through a helmet. And the young, soft, flexible expressed through the teddybeer.

Previous painting: This painting is inspired by the paintings of Edward Hopper, who's name contains the word 'hope'. Here you see the Esperanza Theatre. A man walks. The woman does not sell tickets but reads a book. The program is empty. In the theater of hope you can not just buy a ticket and get what you've paid for. It is much more about imagination, in this theater of hope.
