The seven works of mercy

During my artist in residence at the Vincent van Gogh House Zundert (july 2014) I made seven paintings: The seven works of mercy. The act of mercy is performed in every image, but I turned it upside-down, so the act of mercy isn't merciful at all. I want to make people more aware of what happens in the world and of their own behaviour, and I want them to care more for each other with these works. The paintings are acrylics on canvas, 80 x 120 cm.
