Helga



Andrew Wyeth doesn't usually do it for me, but I like this painting from the Helga series. The tempera is so important to the way this picture works - that surface precision and the pigment's muted, inward glow. If we're talking about Heidegger, it's also worth considering Wyeth's regionalism and the way it might relate to the historical being and endowment of a people.
