This Leonard Cohen portrait contains layers of blue and black denim. Measure 50 x 50cm.
All portraits are done in denim. I call it “denim art”. I enjoy the transformation from a couple of old jeans to contemporary art. The portraits are meant to be recognisable to the viewer, and also express my creative interpretation of the person.
My motivation is to honour a great artist and my idealism about waste-issues and consumerism.
Leonard Cohen. Not untill after he passed away did I learn just a bit about this wonderful man. Thankfully he managed to get much older than others in this business. We are all blessed by more than 50 years of literary art from this man. I just started getting familiar with it. I know I will dig into it many times through the rest of my life.
He is quoted to say a lot of things that makes so much sense. Some of it also shows his sense of humour. I like this one: “I don’t really understand that process called reincarnation but if there is such a thing I’d like to come back as my daughter’s dog”.
