This is a four-colour-linocut printed on 50gsm china paper. The hand signal during diving for "Everything okay" is also posed here as a question to the viewer. How are you? Is everything OK? I am not a friend of superficial small talk, in conversations I actually want to know how my counterpart is doing and I am also prepared if this question is not always answered with "Everything okay". I care about my fellow human beings, and especially in times like the current ones, it is important to keep asking and to maintain interpersonal contact. I am aware that this gesture also has a completely different meaning in some cultures, but even a**holes are human beings and you can care about them and ask them if everything is okay.
