Tigre Cru

At the moment I am working on three tiger heads. They snarls and spits at one. With there jaws open. There are making signals.

But there is also a smile, even though it is ambiguous.

An ambiguity reflects the tiger’s character.

Once I was visited in my studio by one of my friends, a French psychiatrist. No just any psychiatrist. He is among other things a great admirer of Jean Dubuffet’s art. He looked at my animal pictures amicably. After a while he looked at me and said, “Uffe, you don’t paint animals at all. Has nobody ever told you that you have been painting human beings?”
