Kris Geheim currently lives and paints in Rotterdam, the Nederlands. ‘’ l realized that l had only one way in life-to follow my nature, to paint. Paint about women, to explain for myself and others what we are in real, what is our role in this life. And here is a question of tradition arose: on the one hand, it is breathtakingly beautiful. l love the tradition, history, costumes, decorations, rituals, it is all very feminine, we love beauty, decorating everything, giving the whole some kind of form. But on other hand, it is a duty, lack of freedom, something that forces us to behave as it should, to hide emotions, chase an ideal. Now the time seems to have changed, we are free to do whatever we want to do, but it is only illusion, everything is exactly the same as before , we strive to be perfect, we make plastic surgery, we create an ideal image in social networks, we do our best to show that everything is wonderful for us , again and again we hide our true feelings. But my paintings show these feelings. It is very important for me to say: at any time, in any era, we, the women are the same. We are chained by tradition, dressy clothes, norms, but it is impossible to escape from emotions and they still will show up in our eyes.”
