Since the period that he lived in Cambodia for a long time, Klashorst has painted a lot on PVC. Canvas is hard to get there. The advantage of painting on PVC is that the colours look very beautiful and bright, whereas with canvas the colors are often quite dull.
Klashorst had been making different version of Vermeer’s ‘Girl with a pearl earring’ the last few years. This is one of them, without an earring.
