Hazam Et L'Oeuf Noir @ Galerie MixArt
Hazam Et L'Oeuf Noir
Oil and metal on board, gold plated wooden frame with 2 red ceramic dots (2021)
This is my only work with a french name to date. Its not clear to me what inspired the name “Hazam”. I wasn't even sure if it was a real name of a person.
The figure has a black egg in the hand and a bird on the shoulder. The bird's eye is a hole in the painting. The eyes of the figure are made of painted metal.
Inscriptions Front: "J.B."
Inscriptions Back: "W1998-56" / "J.Bollen" / "Hazam Et L'oeuf Noir”
Dimensions: 20,5 x 25,5 cm x 3cm(with frame) / 14,5 x 20 cm(without frame)
Update: It feels as if the story of this painting still has to be written. I just searched the internet for the meaning of the word 'Hazam' and got the following result: "Hazam is baby boy name mainly popular in Muslim religion and its main origin is Arabic. Hazam name meanings is 'brave', 'unfearing'.
