I was introduced to Neuschwanstein Castle by my father when I was growing up. I’ve never actually been there (yet). My father was a very keen fan of Richard Wagner’s Operas and one day he brought home a new record player. He suffered terribly from depression and would play music very loud sometimes late into the night.
One night when I was about 7 years old, he played something that I’d never heard before which was so beautiful I got out bed and sat at the top of the stairs to listen to it. I later learnt that it was the prelude to Wagner’s Opera Tannhauser. I would sit at the top of the stairs listen the Wagnerian music often (unknown to my parents) only telling them decades later. Wagner is a lot like Marmite – you either love it or hate it. For me it’s really calming and restorative.
One of Richard Wagner’s Patrons at one point was King Ludwig of Bavaria. The young king had a fascination for Swans apparently, and they feature all over the Castle. He equally had a very tragic life but lived long enough to build this fabulous castle. My artwork is my interpretation of his fairy tale castle.
