ust after the Fukushima nuclear disaster, started on the 11th of March 2011, I made this painting. It represents the astonishment of a lot of people. I wonder if we learn from this tragic event. The man can be Jesus, but I am still not sure.
rom the same book I saw a work from Amedeo Modigliani, Sleeping Nude with Arms Open (Red Nude). the original is nice and certainly not offensive. Maybe my version is a little bit naughty. I really liked to paint this one.
started to make a copy of the work Olympia by Édouard Manet. I saw a picture in a book about paintings and I liked it. But it was not easy. I changed almost everything. I still wonder if this is what I wanted, but it is how it is, so that is good enough.
his painting, the last leftovers of my cheap paint used, I painted with big brushes and palette knifes. Using a palette knife is a nice technique, especially when working wet-in-wet. Because of the bad paint, a lot of craquelure started to develop, I like the craquelure. [update 2015] Still I like this painting very much and I’m still trying to get the same effect.
