Reflections > Nieuwe Energie, Leiden (2015)


From January – June eight works about reflections were shown at ‘Nieuwe Energie Leiden‘ – 3e Binnenvestgracht 23, Leiden.

A moment of reflection gives me new energy; positive energy."

Understand me. I’m not like an ordinary world.
I have my madness, I live in another dimension and
I do not have time for things that have no soul.”
