Series: "Ta nos hende nan" 

"Ta nos hende nan" means "this is our people" in the language Papiamentu/ Papiamento.

Within this series of paintings I explore the cultures I grew up with in Curacao through the understanding of cultural anthropology. For every painting in this series I use the methodology of  "participant observation" or I engage in structured conversations that reveals norms and values that are expressed through rituals, food, fashion, architecture, language, design.
