"dogs like us"
adored/tributes - will denominate a new series, revisiting some masterpieces that have come along and left traces over the years...Trying to explore its essence, getting them into a actual or personal context for me & my environment as sensible constructs. So - with my recent "dogs like us" just now in 2020 - there is the ever-present Alberto Giacometti, as well as his brother Diego. "Le chien", 1951, used as a template to depict the straydog he encountered late night as a metaphor for the modern family-construct: the adored doggy as pseudo substitute child. Followed by earlier works just like Anton Böcklins "Toteninsel", my hommages to "Benidorm" & "Manhattan 2011" ...and one day in future my contribution to Deborah Butterfield, Lynn Chadwick, and so forth...
