Artwork Description

“The idea that a snail carries its home on it back inspired this painting. I had made that analogy when describing traveling abroad, living out of a backpack ‘like a snail’. It made me imagine myself as a snail, seeking double shelter beneath the leaf of a plant.”

– Carel Brest Van Kempen
