CRÊPE DE CHINE INTELLECT, 

This painting is inspired from a photograph of artist Oskar Kokoschka with cigarette. The figure on the left is after Kokoschka’s portrait painting of the brilliant Austrian writer, journalist Karl Kraus (1874-1936). Kraus wrote scathingly about Viennese intellectual society’s shiny, artificial veneer with its underlying hypocrisy and malice. He signed some of his early articles with the pseudonym Crêpe de Chine. Hence the title I've chosen

The figures of singularity is a collection of my paintings that pay homage to personalities that stand out because of their creative genius. Often my work involves the artists as well as quotations, figures from their entourage,  and their own work as a form of painting-collage that informs my creations. Fragments of existence that touches me or fires my imagination.
