Quid ego facere non possum, 2018


Oil on canvas

That is a reference to Jan van Eyck’s ‘Man in the Red Turban’ (which is possibly his self portrait) and its inscription on the frame ‘Als ich kan’ meaning ‘I do as I can’. In this work artist again is making a deliberate mistake with Google translate from ‘I do what I cannot do’ to latin ‘Quid ego facere non possum’. This work was shown in gallery Vartai, 2019.
