Ria van Eyk (1935)
Europa for good luck or for bad luck 1992/'93
Series of 5 conceptual mixed media works on the occasion of the Maastricht Treaty in 1992. Provided with texts in several languages about the rainbow. The symbol of the unity for Europe. Framed with wooden frames black and white with museum glass.

Work no. 2 with German and Spanish text
Work no. 3 with French and Danish text

You could call this work an occasional work, because it came into being after the Treaty of Maastricht and was commemorated in 2017 because of the 25th anniversary. This work does not speak out about pro or against Europe.
The rainbow as a sign of hope, its meaning in several languages quoted from various dictionaries and written there symbolizes the differences between cultures and nationalities and thus the need for conversation and consultation between the different countries.

Photo with Ria and the Commissioner of the King in Brabant, Wim van de Donk.

    Olympus trip werkt niet "prima", de lichtmeter hapert.
    Met haperen bedoel ik eigenlijk totaal niet werken. Met mijn hand op de lens in auto stand zonder probleem kunnen afdrukken...

    Vreemd toen ik hem wegstuurde werkte hij wel? Blijft hij hangen of meet hij niet goed?
