Mixed media, oil, pastels
A simple concept with a powerful message, Hendrikka created portraits of ladies with a single-ear motif.
The motif is open to interpretation, but one interpretation is that in today’s world, with an influx of information coming from every direction, you don’t have to listen to everything. The portraits pay tribute to women who have forged their own path in life rather than following conventional wisdom. Ultimately the motif is open-ended–open to boundless possibilities from one viewer to the next.
