Troels Carlsen "Don't You Know You're Life Itself"
A beautiful falcon subdued on an operating table handled by professional anonymous hands. Plumage illuminated by blitz. A strange image. The composition is hard to decipher, accidental amateurish? Professional to the point? A revealing snapshot? It could have been a screen dump from the world wide web’s vast ocean of strange and disconnected images, but painted in oil, in minute detail on a large canvas (160 x 220 cm), the work takes on different dimensions.February 26, 2016
