The re-enactment of battles is a great tourist experience as well as an outlet for the actors in these events. The losing side organizes many of these gatherings and a good example is the Battle of the Little Big Horn Re-enactment on the Crow Reservation in southern Montana. To clarify, the Crow were scouts for the Americans.

There are also strangely enough re-enactments staged by other countries. Just south of Berlin, Germans like to portray American Civil War events, with reasoning that many German immigrants fought in this war.

As with re-enactments, even though there are attempts at authenticity, this is an impossible task. A degrading of the actual battles happens. Political correctness can further pollute the forgotten truths. With my paintings, I am trying to decompose these events even more with the removal and color conversions of visual information. The question I want to play with has to do with color switches and abstractions that sweeten the gory truths usually romanticized by traditional panoramic historical painting. I want to see color convey the content.

Embroidery is another element of this project. Linked to traditional panoramic history genre is medium that has had traditions in depicting battles; The Bayreuth Tapestry, being just one example. Most often these survive in fragments, as does my own stitching.
