Isle of the Dead (Boecklin)
Oil on canvas, 50x70 cm, 2018

My personal copy of the Arnold Böcklin painting. I left out the boat with the two figures and changed the entrance. I like the idea of driving into the unknown darkness on the calm water, rather than stepping on solid ground and walking into it. I imagine one could circle the complete and rather small island - but when you enter the dark center you'll find an infinite land of the dead...
I love Böcklin's work and really enjoyed the process. 
Check out Rachmaninov's piece!
