"The ability of the Flemish Renaissance painter Pieter Bruegel the Elder to paint a moment that captured the costume, colour, culture and character of the time and place has always impressed me. I've tried to paint moments in time that reflect all of those realities here and now". - Aleida van der Hoogte
