What Would Warhol do?

by Carl Frederik Waage Beck on juni 13, 2009

I was lucky enough to visit the exhibition of Warhols portraits at the Grand Palais in Paris today.

One of the things that struck me, is that sometimes you don’t really need a new style, or a new approach to painting. Sometimes it’s actually perfectly right what your doing already. All you have to do is go on.

Just paint another person. Or as Warhol (as I remember it) put it: “it’s like a surgeon who doesn’t really care about who he does, as long as he gets to operate, I don’t care who I paint, as long as I get to make a portrait.”

This series below is a testament to that.

Best regards, Carl

Election results: And the winner is…

by Carl Frederik Waage Beck on juni 8, 2009

The results are in, and the winner of Saviour 2009 is…….. (drumroll) Barack Obama!!!
Below is a detailed view of the votes:

When I initially started thinking about the idea of making an election as part of the exhibition in Brorsons church, I had no idea that reality would catch up and highlight the importance of personal responsibility.
As the votes where being cast on this site and by many on May 28th at the reception in Brorsons, 60 Iraqi refugees where sheltering in the crypt and in the organ loft of the church.

Their presence reminds us all that even though we can elect leaders to guide us through the rough patches, we still all have an obligation to “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you”.

These words where repeated by Obama last thursday in Cairo. Maybe this is why so many voted for him.
Take the time to watch the whole speech. The words are spoken at 52:10.

Best regards, Carl
