Dinner with Ingmar Bergman
acrylic, ink, collage on wood
12' square

This is based on a night in the West of Ireland, in a tiny restaurant, with windows open to a field on one side, filled with cows, and the sea blown by wind on the other. Euro-pop played in the background, and we heard Italian, German and French around us, as well as a cow moaning... her calf was gone. The light began to fade and a teenager came into the field on a massive horse, cantering: we could hear the hooves hitting the ground. We kept wondering which director could best make the movie, and we decided it would be Ingmar Bergman.
