"In 774 they crossed the street of Gibraltar to arrive in Europe. The first business (wo)men introduced rice, ginger, granaten pom, oranges, figs and sugar cane in Europe. The products became very populair especially in the Mediterranean countries"
What if colonisation and transatlantic slave trade happened. And what if people don't judge on our sex and appearance but on the content of our mind. How would our world look like today. I made this serie 'Europe' based on these thoughts in combination with my ever lasting inspiration from the Renaissance in The Netherlands.
Many painters like Rembrandt inspired me to use and look at light as treasure from that time. With this in consideration I let my mind go and imaging a world how Europe would look like in the Renaissance era when sex and race has been accepted as equal.
