Art with a presence

I love art on walls. So much so, that there has been a time that I tried to build a 15 cm thick wall by pouring cement around a welded steel frame, just to use it as a canvas to paint on. The steady, strong, evenness and presence attracts me. Like a house in which you feel safe. Well, that first wall didn't last very long. Of course it broke and the effect was gone for me. But this time, I am ready for the real thing! So point me any piece of brick or concrete, even large wooden spaces and I'm on my way! 

In drawing or in painting, I love a decisive line and bold, outspoken color elements, holding a piece together like the solid brick work of a longlasting fortress.
