Two point of views. Windows of Rye. 2019. J.Harms. Acrylic on canvas. 38×46 cm.
This is the second painting from the Windows of Rye serie. Earlier this year, a couple of weeks before the first Brexit-date was suppose to take place, I visited the medieval city of Rye in the South of England, not far from Hastings. At first, I was interested in painting the different layers of the city. I spent quite a lot of time taking pictures of the streets from all sorts of angles. It was on the third and last day of my visit that I realised that the windows had a story to tell.
Although they belong to the same building, two windows show opposite views. There is also a back way for those ready to jump over the wall.
