This painting is inspired by the documentary 'Century of the Self' by Adam Curtis. Curtis uses a lot of historic film material. This work is painted from a screenshot taken from his film. The film deals mainly with the character of Edward Barney who is a greatly influential figure in the 20th century but is not very well known to the public. You can say that he was the mind behind changing the American society from a needs to a desire society. His work was of great value to big companies like American Tobacco, United Fruits as well as to political campaigns.

Oscillation and The Dancing Line Two things, which are important to me in painting. One I call oscillation (Schwingung). Over the years I noticed that, my favorite pictures are those from which some sort of oscillation emanates. Of course a canvas is a flat, two dimensional surface but if one observes it there is the impression that it wobbles or the air just before the image is moving. Almost as if the canvas is breathing. Sometimes it takes time to achieve it, sometimes it does not happen, but sometimes it does. Then I call it Oscillation. The other thing is The Dancing Line. We all have it when we are kids. When one is growing up and starts reflecting about what one is doing, you begin to tell yourself, what the hell am I doing here? I also lost The Dancing Line on the way and I was fighting the last years to regain it. It is a free, brave line, it is natural and authentic and I am very grateful that it came back to me.
