My Apple-girls, with their back turned towards the spectator consciously creates a tension and for some a provocation of our inner feelings. We are disturbed by the fact that she turns her back towards us. However, the way I see it is that she is facing in the same direction as you and I, as observers. An unpredictable moment is created which can either entice or provoke with the fact that you are not able to see her face. The Apple-girl with her back turned towards the spectator creates a tension and it is up to the viewer to complete the story. A direct facial expression sometimes reveals less than what is only implied. One of the greatest missions for me as an artist, is for the spectator, at first sight, to sense the romance, harmony and beauty of my paintings. However, at looking closer into the painting the spectator is met with one or more underlying disturbing elements. A painting needs to have an edge, an unpredictability just like life itself. We are never allowed to live in full harmony. We need there to be something to entice our eyes and soul, in order for us to let the light in.
