Yesterday’s Blood: a portrait of the artist Florian Heinke   Florian Heinke’s paintings are full of very personal stuff – intimate autobiography and opinion. So are his tattoos. This got me to thinking – as an artist, if you plaster your whole personal life over the walls and over your body, is there anything left that stays private? Can you capture a person on canvas or does the essence of a person – constantly moving and changing, constantly fluid – defy representation in a static work of art by moving on the second it’s been “recorded”? That’s where this portrait’s coming from…
