notes: Lenzner presents three works which make up a triptych. He paints a self-portrait, a dark and complicated identity which interacts with past genres in Art History. The triptych is presented in two parts: the lower part of the work shows a self-portrait of the artist while the upper part tells the story of Don Quixote in kind of running motion picture as in early cinema. The story of Don Quixote is presented in a style similar to paper-cuts and is a duplication of the self-portrait which the artist presents in the bottom half of his paintings. In his work Lenzner is showing to the viewer his inner contemplation – the dark side of the moon – and through this triptych, Lenzner allows us to peek into the intimate shadows of his inner thoughts.
