Coffin | Sarg Part 3

When I started painting, the acrylic surface turned out to be very slippery. The bristles created a streaky brushwork and showed to much of the green underpainting. So I decided to see this stage as an underpainting.

Als ich das Malen anfing stellte sich heraus, daß die Akryloberfläche zu stark isoliert und rutschig war. Die Borsten hinterließen einen streifigen Farbauftrag, in dem das Grün ständig durchkam. So beschloß ich diese Stufe als Untermalung zu nehmen.

Audacious!
I had to think, what's the message here? Or more accurately, how is the public going to interpret this?
They might think;
a) these coffins are a comfortable place to rest.
b) get burried nude, it's like skinny dipping.
c) so glad he didn't paint a corpse.
d) all of the above. ; D

What a cool project/show!

Thanks, Joe, Ed, Silvina and Alan.

Silvina- First I have had to look up "audacious" and I like it, because it fits. I am so curious what the people will say. The show will be in a church and wait until you see the lid.

I'm very interested to see if they'll even allow it in a church. I don't know how it is in Germany, but in the States churches are very uptight about nudity and images of nudes. Even if it isn't meant to be erotic.

I suspect that it's a cultural mindset, not necessarily a Christian mindset. I will be watching with great interest.

Silvina- We had already an exhibition there and one of the colleagues had a big painting in the show of death and the maiden, in which the maiden was also nude. But by writing this I am not sure anymore because my top painting is a lot more offensive.

But I have to admit, here in Europe we don´t make such a fuss about nudity like in the USofA.
