A painting of an impossible staircase. Also the small portraits on the walls of the hall contain pictures of impossible structures.
For the 50 year anniversary of the Weesperflat I wanted to make a hallway with an impossible staircase. As it's also the last painting I made in my student room in the Weesperflat I wanted the pictures on either side of the hall to be miniature versions of paintings I've made in the Weesperflat. However I choose not to as; 1. I wanted the focus to be on the staircase. A divers colors scheme in the paintings would have changed the focus towards the paintings. 2. Some paintings were too difficult to paint in such as small picture as they'll lose perspective and meaning when the have to be painted in such small details. 3.Lack of time.
Instead of miniature paintings I've chosen for impossible elements I've used in my work during my Weesperflat period.
