New Odalisque (2004)

new_odalisk_B_800

New Odalisque is my attempt to step into another old tradition. I have huge problem with the way romanticism has taught us to create original artworks. There are certain stories that have to be told again and again. There are only 36 base stories - Goethe and Schiller tried to create a 37th one but they failed. There are certain pictures that have to be recreated again and again, every time from a different perspective. A different perspective in time, a different person trying to recreate it from his personal perspective, standing in the culture he or she was born into. The Odalisque seems to be one of these pictures.
