As I said yesterday I was glad to visit the show Modern Life with works by Edward Hopper and his peers. Hopper has always been a great influence to me as a painter and it's always a pleasure to see his works in real life.

On todays work you see a man looking or rather looking away from Hoppers South Carolina Morning. As Hopper figures usually lacked any communication I thought it would be great to do the same with my figure. He's looking in another direction as well. Hopper influenced me greatly, but on a whole other level the title Other Direction also stands for me choosing my own path.

kind regards, Gerard
