From my sketchbook. Respectfully fucking around with Ghanese filmposter art from the 1990s. Rotterdam's Kunsthal has a big show of these, called Bloodywood. Around 2005, Le Dernier Cri published a book on the same topic called Hollyvoodoo, which is a title I think a little more to the point. But anyway...

Holiday snapshot alert: these were taken in the Patsaspuisto ("sculpture park") in Parikkala, Finland, at walking distance from the Russian border. Over 500 cement life-size sculptures are to be seen there, so as remote as the place may be, it is... kind of crowded. They look bizarre, morbid to some, with their glass eyes and dentures (which the artist, Veijo Rönkkönen, obtained by mail from doctors) Check the link for more detailed information about this remarkable outsider artist.
Quite a personal pilgrimage.

as it's on good way to be finish i can show you this almost at the end, most of the work now won't be very visible on picture (its about glazing the surfaces)
that is my best attempt to get back to painting, with more figurativ work than i was doing years ago. Technically it's very close to flemish painting, means working on woodboard with homemade pigments and medium which is oil+resin (sandarac)
then i ry to stay in the renaissance type without going to realistic, more or less
