The guy who takes a chance, who walks the fine line between the known and unknown, who is unafraid of failure, will succeed. It turns out that an artist famous for his figurative work has been working towards abstraction all his life. In Nerdrum's vision, the coprophiliac, the necrophiliac, the scatological and the phallic are all disclosed in public. A 'good ol' boy' from Missouri dared to break away from his traditional art training, and jump from the safe edge into the unknown. Frida Kahlo, an artist best known for her self-portraiture, wrote her own role as the proto-typical Mexican and she played it meticulously.
