Draft Son of Dionysus. Nicolas Von Jahn-Burian Nicolas Von Jahn-Burian
Draft, a mental game. A few days ago, in a clearing, I made this sketch. Next to me was a bottle of red wine and, rather quietly, a paper cup. I played with my pencils and suddenly this image was on my paper. Later, back in my studio, I used this sketch to create the painting Son of Dionysus.

Deities are not only part of history, do not only have their presence in the past. They are still there today, are among us. Religion is not only faith. Religion is also the capacity for fantasy, for surrender in dreams. I see Dionysus in the present as a handsome young man who represents nothing less than the origin in mythology. He represents the joy of life, ecstatic pleasure in every sense and a certain madness in exaggeration. Passion.
