Holla the forest fairy, The Winter

Winter from the cycle “The Seasons”

Portrait of my daughter

The figure descends from fairy tales, myths and transcendental spheres. She appears white, almost transparent, but with fine speckles of rouge, modelled as an Elizabethan ideal of late Renaissance beauty. Her feathery hair is like a snow flurry crown. The purity is nevertheless disturbed by the uncanny illumination of the eyes, which – in a reaction to tender strokes – begin to cold glow.
