I do not like “selfies” but I needed to update my human ‘image’. So today (june 16th 2017) was the day to take that photo in front of a new painting which might be finished. For the “photo-phile”: the photo specs are: self timer 10sec, f/9.5 , speed 1/10, lens: Canon EF 1:1,2 85mm, camera: Canon EOS 5D Mark III -I’m glad it’s over!
The painting is rotated to the left in this sequence. This “Plague of Ignorance” is perfect no matter how you look at it. Run.
One can rotate this painting in all 4 directions, the ‘Plague of Ignorance’ stays seductively and morbidly dominant.
The Dilettante Scarf -I designed it and my G-friend (Margareta Reeve) knitted it.

Another painting to show ‘genetic memory’ as a recurring theme is “Zwischenwelt”(“In-Between World”) that I did in 1993 while in Spain. Notice the crashing and suffering aircrafts, the evil conspiring gossipers, etc.
Mostly all of my earlier work is dedicated to these visions that I can’t seem to ignore.”Kriegsbild” and “Unterwasser” are other paintings(unfortunately no photos exist- all lost!) Most of the work is ‘colourful’, but that’s only a deception because in reality the content is All very Dark.
