"Eternal Return is a painting about the cycle of life and death in a dramatic​ setting; a joyful painting showing life and death on a stage. It is a painting celebrating material life, the equal importance of mortality and new life, bloom and wither. It was a joy to paint the different materials: the slate, the metal, the fresh fruit pulp, the misty landscape, and above all the germinating seeds. I hope it will bring joy to the viewer too." – Joke Frima
