"Living on probation" , by Erik Pevernagie, oil on canvas, 80 x 100 cm

Some fail to bear in mind that everyone is sentenced to death. Death is a treacherous virus that strikes randomly. The only truth is that nobody is going to make it out alive. We are all living on probation and our expiry date is indefinite.

Certain social groups, however, are predestined "not to be lucky" in life. Aids victims are condemned to live on probation and many just feel temporarily released from death.

Chemical formulae on the canvas point out the medical researches and the urgent need of a vital remedy. A Red Ribbon appeals to the necessity of international aids solidarity. A prototype of the painting was executed on paper, for Yvon Lambert Gallery, Paris (Art Protects)

Phenomenon: Aids and solidarity

Factual starting point of the picture: Person in lying position
