This painting gives an outspoken view on two  different neighborhoods. The new one is the so called “Zuidas”. Actually, it is more than a neighborhood. It’s an upscale business district which started around 2000 and located in the south of Amsterdam.  The  “Zuidas” develops and expands very fast.  

Now this. “Zuidas” borders on several existing residential areas. An eye catching one is the area with villa’s from the fifties. This causes an amazing contrasts. In this painting I bend perspective. The painting shows an avenue where beautiful designed villa’s are confronted with the high-rise of the “Zuidas”. But I gave the houses other dimensions to bring the two very different neighborhoods a bit together. To give some harmony in a new reality.
