TRONIES, also known as "character heads“, explore the spectrum of human physiognomy and expression of emotions: often also half figures, whose faces are portrayed as realistically as they are expressively strong.
In the past, TRONIES were characterized by a particularly virtuoso use of artistic means and reflected characterological ideas that belong to the early history of psychology.
These works are not intended as portraits but as studies of expression, type, physiognomy or an interesting character such as an old man or woman, a young woman, the soldier, the shepherdess, the oriental, or an artist etc.
"Don't fight your demons. Your demons are here to teach you lessons. Sit down with your demons and have a drink and a chat and learn their names and talk about the burns on their fingers and scratches on their ankles. Some of them are very nice." (Charles Bukowski)
"I never painted dreams.
I painted my own reality.
I paint self-portraits
because I am so often alone,
because I am the person
I know best.
So absurd and fleeting is our step through this world, that only leaves me at peace knowing that I have been authentic, that I have managed to be the most similar to myself." (Frida Kahlo)
