The big time

ortho owen

Ortho Owen, a Canadian artist, was a man of many talents. He had a gift for words, he loved writing. He was good in sport, he was a fervent ice hockey and golf player. He was a man of bold strong lines and movement. The human form in motion never ceased to interest and excite him. In the end he had lost it all.

He died, 41 years old, 10 years after he was diagnosed with a brain tumour.

This is a reconstruction of ‘his big time’ in Amsterdam, a homage to the man, his work and his courage.
