I have completed seven new pieces based on photos by Edward S. Curtis. I am mostly interested in the faces, not so much the romantic illusion. As a child I read a lot about indians and today I am interested in the fact that the “modern man” is still so fascinated by them. Why is it so? Is it the idea of freedom, and the terrible loss of it?
Each piece is painted on plywood, 20 x 15 cm large and 1,2 cm thick. The sides are cut at a 15 degree angle and all pieces have various layers of high gloss varnish.
It has been a busy week outside of the studio. Three days at Skaltek in Stockholm and two days moving Victoria to Gothenburg. Now I have a cold, a sore neck, a bad back, lost a filling in a tooth, but otherwise I am fine…
