Odd Nerdrum, Self Portraits

Cover Image: Head on the table

In the years around 1990, more drama and conflict begins to enter the motifs. This happens at a time when Odd Nerdrum’s own life is turning somersaults. Hew was finding it difficult to adjust to conventional family life with wife and children and mostly lived according to his own desires. The family was shattered when he chose to enter into a new relationship, which in turn ended shortly afterwards, so he felt that all was in uproar and chaos around him. Quite naturally, his paintings from this period are even darker and full of pain.
