Since spring 2011 Paul Christiaan Bos fully dedicated himself to his "Owlery Project", an "intense search for echoes of the primeval self". In 2012 he met with a serious car-accident that made it impossible to continue with the old and very intensive way of working. He had to somehow find a totally different way of painting. The Owls turned out to be a salvation, as they already were a source of inspiration. The artist also turned to writing about them.
There have by now appeared three books by him:
1986 "The Eyes Amazed"
2015 "Uilen Dagboek" (not yet translated into English)
2016 "De Uilen Tuin" (not yet translated into English)
