Hi Tom, this is an Autobiographic piece, the Kid in the front is me at probably age 2-3 and my Mother in the background when she was around 21-22, the little heads are collage of my Grandfathers Head taken from a photo from 1944, there are also some other symbolic elements in this piece I worked on for a period of ca. six month on and off, I did it mostly for my Mother who is in Germany and she has never seen a show of my work yet and is to old to Travel to Canada, I'm in the process to have a show in my Hometown Cologne so she will have finally a chance to come to a show. As you probably see this piece is a bit outside of what I normally do but it was an interesting experience to do it.

Cheers,

Detlef

I'd be interested to know what is the story behind this painting.   Another well done piece of art!
