The Scream- Painting Of Woman Enjoying Painting By Edvard Munch



The Scream
painting of a woman enjoying painting The Scream by Edvard Munch

71" x 47 1/4" or 180 x 120 cm

'I was walking along the road with two friends – the sun was setting – suddenly the sky turned blood red – I paused, feeling exhausted, and leaned on the fence – there was blood and tongues of fire above the blue-black fjord and the city – my friends walked on, and I stood there trembling with anxiety – and I sensed an infinite scream passing through nature.'

That's what Edvard Munch wrote about his painting The Scream in his diary. This painting has always been a personal favorite and thought it would be perfect for my third giant scale painting. Hope you enjoy it!

A woman is about to walk into a dark building. To me this symbolizes the fact that the future might look dark, but you have to show courage and walk through that door anyhow. Do not let your fears hold you back.

One night I was watching the 8 o'clock news with Noraly Beijer on Dutch television and wondered what I was actually watching. I decided to take a picture of my television screen to freeze time and use it as a starting point for a painting. As it turned out what I was watching was a candy colored environment with a tank in it.

This Is Not A Magritte- Painting Of Woman Enjoying Treachery Of Images (This Is Not A Pipe) By Rene Magritte

This Is Not A Magritte
painting of a woman enjoying painting Treachery Of Images (This Is Not A Pipe) by Rene Magritte

G. Boersma
acrylic on masonite
19 3/4" x 15 3/4" or 50 x 40 cm

The woman on my painting is enjoying 'Treachery Of Images' also known as 'This Is Not A Pipe' by Rene Magritte who painted it when he was 30 years old.

This much discussed picture shows a pipe, but below it, Magritte wrote: 'Ceci n'est pas une pipe', French for 'This is not a pipe.'

And that is of course true to some extent: the painting is not a pipe, but rather an image of a pipe. As is my painting not a Magritte, but rather an image of a painting by Magritte. That's why I entitled it 'This Is Not A Magritte'.
