In the period of Covid-19 and quarantine, Francien Krieg paints self-portraits that can be read as a journey through time.
She captures several phases in the forced home isolation and the emotional life of the isolated. Where peace, security and confidence predominate at the start of the quarantine, shady sides gradually emerge.
Inner turmoil, confrontations with oneself, the longing for fresh air and light, the hunger for touch, the insecure look for better times. The series of portraits, which is still growing and developing, shows how the inner world comes to life in all its facets while the outer world stands still.
The series evolves with current events and offers a special perspective on a worldwide and at the same time personal event, the outcome of which is still unknown. The alternation of tension and relaxation, struggle and resignation, portrayed in fairness, makes the series an intriguing whole.
