Fresco for the Brugmann University Hospital Centenary. It can be seen in a space dedicated to carers and patients, to make it more welcoming, creative and poetic for all those who come into contact with them on a daily basis.
Open field is a work which, as its name suggests, suggests an opening to the outside world. On the wall, the dynamic, colorful shapes punctuate the footsteps of passers-by. On the ceiling, the motif is perforated with several white cut-outs, to reveal the “background” of the work. For the artist, this work is directly inspired by the building’s architecture.
