In 2010 Transition Town Tilburg commissioned me to add paintings to an interactive exhibition called Tasty Food. With this exhibition, a clear picture was sketched of all the themes surrounding food. My first idea was to use ‘My body is my house’ as a guideline. While experimenting I noticed that I was too literally busy.
There was a bowl of walnuts on the table and I went to investigate the walnut. This resulted in the CV of the walnut, alias the walnut and in Latin the Juglans regia L.
A series of experimental paintings contain a stylized print of a cross-section of the walnut. The prints were made with self-made stamps that automatically became a work of art as well.
