"Being creative gives me a feeling of boundlessness and limitlessness. Especially during the corona lockdown during the spring of 2020, it was very important to be able to experience this feeling of freedom. This painting is inspired by my own corona-diary. My thoughts about this period inspired me to use parts of the text in the city with sheet metal. The texts in the painting are not only about the surreal experience of the deserted streets in the normally crowded cities, but also about how strange it is when you suddenly lose your freedom. The freedom to go where you want, to visit whoever you want, whenever you want." - Elise Eekhout
