Freese, Birds of Ohio

Birds of Ohio

Pen and black ink, over etching, 2001, 104 x 120 mm.. On a late impression or copy of a landscape etching by Johannes Brosterhuysen (ca. 1596-1650) of a country road bordered with trees, the meticulously drawn heads and part-bodies of three enormous birds interject themselves into the landscape space from outside the borderline. Mounted on another sheet and signed and dated verso. Norbert Freese is the one contemporary artist whose works we feature. Thus far, all of his works are drawings, frequently drawn over, or incorporating, late or damaged impressions or reproductions of old master prints, and thus transforming realistic images into surrealistic ones. His work has little in common with that of any other contemporary artist known to us, and we are both pleased and gratified that it fits so well with the kinds of art we offer.
