This painting is part of a serie in which hands and trees symbolize subjects, such as contrasts and forces.
More and more, the surrounding becomes part of the painting. In this painting the metallic, strong frame breaks to emphasize the breaking force. The frame is on the one side broken and rusty, on the opposite side: whole, newborn and shiny. The opposite hands represent destruction and creation.
The beginning, creation is protected but crackled. The hand above it, in the middle, represents healing. Healing as well as destruction requires the same amount of sensitivity or feeling, but with different goals. It originates from the same source, they are opposite, but also tightly connected. The almost modest tree in the middle is struck by lighting.
