Heile Welt — A Perfectly Imperfect World How much of the past is romanticized; how much was ever true? What present day images will evoke similar responses in the future? Cultural nostalgia is the central theme being examined in this series. The paintings in the series depict film scenes from the post WWII “heimat” film genre of Austria, Bavaria and Switzerland in which nothing bad ever happened and everyone could sing. These paintings are fiction. They show us memories of things that never happened, yet they mirror our culture, our lives and our values. The distortion of color and reference to screened framing and reflections all serve to create distance to the image, to make us aware of our nostalgia, to remind us of our fable for romantic fiction. The final image holds as much truth and illusion today as it did in the past. What remains? Between our nostalgic past and bright, fearsome future lies the present day. What defines us and our culture today? What do we value, hold dear, and fight to pass on to future generations? How do we experience our own personal perfectly imperfect “heile Welt” today?
