The origin of the ‘Dance of Death’ totentanz, can be found in the psychology of the middle ages, which constantly stressed the thought of death and the vanity of earthly things. Many artists, including Holbein worked on this theme Materialism veiling anxiety is very real to me. My portrait is a connection of these earlier artists, who conveyed in a similar medium, emotions so close to my own. RC
