Die Hände (2019)

Armando “Die Hand”, 2013


There was a big exposition of the work of Armando in December 2018 in Museum Voorlinden and it was there that I was first confronted with his impressive and sometimes heartbreaking work. One of the bigger paintings was entitled “Die Hand”; later I learned that Armando made many objects with this title. Armando’s work triggered me to create the prints shown below.

Printed on 120 gr/m² Fabriano Academia Bianco in 2019. The image size of these prints equals 300 x 240 mm (Die Hãnde I), the sheet size is 32.5 x 40 cm; € 250.- per print. For “Die Hände II”, height and width have been reversed.
