120 x 50 cm. Mixed media, Canvas.
Part of a serie with hands and trees.
In the overstretched elastic is used to contract the wooden frame. It emphasizes the overstretched hand at the top of the painting. As does a endless length of the arm on the elongated canvas.
At the bottom of the painting: the opposite: relaxation. And as overstretching can take an incredible long time…at last the elastic band will lose its elasticity and give in.
