The Holy Fool and the Path of Sacrifice
by Johannes Steuck
This inspired collection of over forty original paintings by Greg Tricker portrays the extraordinary life of Kaspar Hauser. The paintings have a visionary quality which presents a fresh, contemporary image of Kaspar Hauser, portrayed as the Holy Fool, on a path of sacrifice akin to the suffering of Christ. The mysterious life of Kaspar Hauser is explored by the writer and artist Johannes Steuck with a foreword by Jonathan Stedall.
"Not since the paintings of Cecil Collins have I seen work that captures so poignantly the essential purity and innocence of the human being. The Holy Fool is, thank heaven, alive and well in the hands of Greg Tricker."
