Vanitas

Vanitas is a series of paintings made for the exhibition Vanitas in the Natuurmuseum Brabant, the Museum of Nature in Tilburg. The paintings are inspired by the skeleton of a Spermwhale, that was planned to be exhibit in this museumhall. The paintings are made during this installation, in the same hall. The exhibition was a collaboration with another artist, who made the sculptures on the wall.

Vanitas is about the temporality of life: Memento Mori
