Dictatorship

Dictatorship of gravity

1997
Acrylic on canvas
110 x 150 cm

After Jacques-Louis David “Bonaparte franchissant le Grand-Saint-Bernard” (1800) – A small man with a sublime pose. The finger points upwards, the gaze is insistently directed at the viewer. The painting shows Napoléon Bonaparte with reins drawn. The rearing horse of the original is ironically replaced by a smiling, surrendering Baroque female nude in a baby pose. The title of the work is Program: A chaise longue pierced by the weight replaces the Alps, a light wind in the wake of the collapse causes the flame of the antique oil lamp to flare.
