The grey beams are sometimes up and sometimes under the yellow beam in an impossible way. In the Netherlands we use the word onder for under and op for on. In that sense the word onderop is a strange dutch word as it seems it can't chose between under and on. Also the grey beams can't chose to be under or on the yellow beams.


Background Story

For this painting I wanted to experiment with yellow. Yellow is a very strong color that almost always wants to break out of the space it has been given. By using black or grey it should be possible to tame the yellow a bit.
