HM-ART 1510- THE INVISIBLE TWIN TOWELS – February 2021                                Oil on canvas 120x170cm


The world has been spinning like crazy since the destruction of the New York Twin Towers. Since then, a new “Freedom Tower” has been built on that site. After everyone’s financial freedom was taken away, I feel more and more deprived of my own  social freedom. Stripped and naked.
This artwork is about the disappearance of my and perhaps your social freedom and the feeling that we all end up naked. I’ll leave it up to you to judge who will or won’t hand out this necessary towel in the end. 
But do I even need that towel? Not if I want to stay authentic, and can lay off all protective masks. #AboutBecoming #unfuckwithable




De wereld draait dol sinds de vernietiging van de New York Twin Towers. Sindsdien is op die plek een nieuwe “Vrijheidstoren” gebouwd. Nadat ieders financiële vrijheid was weggenomen, voel ik mij iedere dag meer en meer beroofd van mijn sociale vrijheid. Uitgekleed en naakt. 
Dit schilderij gaat over het verdwijnen van mijn en wellicht ook jouw sociale vrijheid en het gevoel dat we allen naakt komen te staan en wij geen enkele handdoek in onze omgeving vrezen te vinden. Ik laat het aan jou over om te beoordelen wie deze noodzakelijke handdoek wel of niet ons uiteindelijk zal aanreiken.
Maar heb ik ūberhaupt die handdoek dan wel nodig? Niet als ik authentiek wil blijven, en geen maskers meer behoef. #AboutBecoming #unfuckwithable



O mundo está enlouquecendo desde a destruição das Torres Gêmeas de Nova York. Desde então, uma nova “Torre da Liberdade” foi construída naquele local. Depois que a liberdade financeira de todos foi tirada me sinto a cada dia mais e mais privado da minha liberdade social. Despido e nu.
Esta pintura é sobre o desaparecimento da minha e talvez também da sua liberdade social e a sensação de que todos acabamos nus. Temos medo não encontrar uma única toalha em nosso ambiente. Vou deixar para você julgar quem vai ou não nos entregar essa toalha necessária no final.
Mas eu realmente preciso dessa toalha? Não se eu quiser permanecer autêntica e não precisar mais de máscaras. #AboutBecoming #unfuckwithable


What does the Freedom Tower symbolize?

The Freedom Tower, now known as the One World Trade Center, is symbolic of the nation’s commitment to rise above the 9/11 terror attacks and established a new architectural landmark and icon for New York City.

On May 10, 2013, the final component of the skyscraper’s spire was installed, making the building, including its spire, reach a total height of 1,776 feet (541 m). Its height in feet is a deliberate reference to the year when the United States Declaration of Independence was signed. The building opened on November 3, 2014;  the One World Observatory opened on May 29, 2015.

On March 26, 2009, the Port Authority of new York and New Jersey confirmed that the building would be officially known by its legal name of “One World Trade Center”, rather than its colloquial name of “Freedom Tower”. The building has 94 stories, with the top floor numbered 104.

The new World Trade Center complex will eventually include five high-rise office buildings built along Greenwich Street, as well as the  National September 11 Memorial & Museum, located just south of One World Trade Center where the original Twin Towers stood. The construction of the new building is part of an effort to memorialize and rebuild following the destruction of the original World Trade Center complex.
