VISIONARY REVUE


THE JOURNEY HOME (1998)
(Thuisvaart)

      The last painting which Johfra completed before his death speaks directly to the heart of the viewer. Amidst the rich organic growths which only he could render, a gondola sets out upon the calmly rippling waters. It is the final voyage to an unknown destination. The theme is neither Hermetic nor Pantheist; it speaks of death neither as transcendence nor immanence. In this final work, an overwhelming feeling arises in answer to life’s eternal question ‘what lies beyond?’ The heart-felt response offered here is - sheer mystery.
