In August 2015, my dear mother past away… . She was the most intriguing person known in our family, a creative centipede who inspired her children and many grand children. In the last months of her life, I have made quite some portraits and series about her.

The “Emptiness” series however were created 6 months after her passing, coincidentally, when I had the chance to visit the house where she lived, and died.

I had never thought that the very cause of her illness would become the main ingredient enabling me to create these series.

These series immortalize the immeasurable emptiness my mother left behind…
