Meeting The Master, with Odd Nerdrum.
The writer Torgrim Eggen interviews Odd Nerdrum at the cultural heart of Russia, visiting the Hermitage Museum, the State Russian Museum, St. Isaac's cathedral and the Repin Academy.
I toured the same museum and sights in Russia last August. In this video, Norwegian artist Odd Nerdrum is paying hommage to Rembrandt, in the same manner that I paid hommage to Matisse when I went to St Petersburg. Read I Ascended Alone, where I recount my own life-changing trip.

Counting Vessels. 2014-15. 13.5" x 9.5." Pastel, Oil, Compressed Charcoal & Graphite. Casey Klahn.
