Andreas Roseneder das blaue krokodil, AquaBrique on canvas 80 x 100 cm 2008
this image does not exist anymore in the state you see it above. it´s just the first sketch of an agressive crocodile snaping the air – or to the beholder. photography gives us the possibility to preserve this provisional result in painting. does this preservation help in going further? – or is it just a barrier to let in new ideas?
& – what´s the meaning of the statement: “after all a painter is painting nothing but the same image his whole life through”? – does a crocodile snap on the same subject his whole life through?
