SEX GAGS, THE POOL and TRAUTMANNSDORF
A three painting series of being in a strange place, questioning oneself.
TRAUTMANNSDORF

is a village in Austria, I accidentally visited by getting out at the wrong  train station. Looking around the area I discovered a soldiers memorial.  The orange portrait of artist Michaela S. Vujovic shows a moment of discomfort for the artist, hiding in the bathroom, having arrived early and nervous at their own performance.

THE POOL

is bright and honest. I tried to create a friendly, less sexually charged environment in this painting. I failed, exposing myself and being judging by the painting.




SEX GAGS

Visiting the restroom at a large exhibition on violence and war at Castle Schlaining, I found a coin machine for sex gags. The unexpected encounter stood in sharp contrast to the experience of the exhibition. The nuns at the counter were friendly.
