Dulle Griet


La cumbia de Dulle Griet


Dulle Griet Asumes (The presidency)



Dulle Griet in Corrientes Street

Dulle Griet gives birth


These drawings were made for the exhibition I had in the Palais de Glace in 2003. They depict "Dulle Griet" (Mad Margaret) a character from the Flemish tradition, painted by Brueghel and used by Bertolt Brecht as a model for "Mother Courage".
Dulle Griet symbolises greed. I transfered this character to my native city, Buenos Aires, at a time of economic turmoil.

más allá del mensaje que se percible claro con apenas golpe de vista, siempre me das ese quedarme ensimismada con los detalles: detrás de la corteza del árbol, el movimiento-luz-sombra del bosque...

creatividad infinitamente infernal la tuya

pd: ups, me puse seria??

Esta bien, Viruta. Mis comentarios a veces pareceran sarcastico pero los dibujos los hago seriamente.

Muy buenos colores, sobre todo la de Corrientes street (ma que la quinta avenida!) me hubiese gustado estar ahí! Si viene a Argentina hace algo en Bs As también! Para los q no podemos viajar para verlo. Lo invito a tomar mate a casa y me muestra algunas cosas.

FANTASTICO, if that's a word, I don't know anything about the character, but it sounds like something I should look into.

....did you pose for the picture, It's nice to see you at work. I have a drafting table I never use, I prefer a big table such as the one you are using, wish I had more space.

Te ha quedado genial Gret. Hay un cuento infantil ilustrado por Carll Cneut, precioso, que se llama Greta La Loca y habla de ella.

Me encantan las fotos donde se te ve trabajar. Lo de retirar los trastos de pintura de la mesa antes de comer es muy común en mi casa :-D

Y, ¡oh! Tienes un libro de Helnwein(!!)

Hiya, Jonz!

Delu...Lindo volverte a oir!...Vi la portada del libro de Cneut..No me parece que me guste mucho lo que vi...Con Helnwein tengo una relacion ambivalente..Es muy buen tecnico pero no estoy absolutamente seguro de su plastica ni de su vision...Un triste comico.
