ORIWAKO (Oil on wood panel, 91.5cm x 61cm, Dirk Marwig 2016)
*This painting was in my studio for more than a year and yesterday I finished it adding the last few essentials it needed. While I was working on it the name “Oriwako” kept going through my mind. I later looked it up on the ‘net’ and found out that the word does not exist. How can this be? This word has some kind of power or meaning in some language, otherwise why would I have constantly repeated it so my times in my head while looking and working on it? Very strange. This makes me wonder.
As always the colours in the photograph are perfectly matched to the ones in the painting.
