Het kunstwerk is een abstrahering van de route die Vincent van Gogh in zijn leven heeft afgelegd. De reis start in Zundert en eindigt in Auvers-sur-Oise. Bij het werk heeft Petra Hart een publicatie gemaakt. Het boekje 'The journey of Vincent van Gogh' met daarin delen uit brieven die Vincent aan Theo (en vrienden en familie) schreef over zijn reis (zijn carrière als schilder, schrijver, geleerde en liefhebber van kunst en literatuur), wat hij zag en waar hij aan dacht tijdens zijn wandelingen. Vincent is zijn leven bezig geweest met het schilderen/vangen van het licht. De materiaalkeuze en kleur van het werk symboliseren deze zoektocht.

'Kingfisher' will change during the day. Light will take control over the artwork. Besides the different colors of shade during the day, the fluor reflects also in orange on the wall and in the night the glow in the dark lights up in blue. (Kingfisher feathers are iridescent. We see them as blue, but they are actually brown).
