his thoughts visible. Hidden in the vividly coloured large paintings you find those
who are behind bars, limitations, which are in forbidden zones; there are
donkeys and birds behind fences, and people, refugees, immigrants, or also prisoners
of restrictive laws, fencing in? Quite intimidating, lines of limitations
