a sunny day this summer

I didn’t I did not know that they also drank water!

PREPARING FOR THE COLD

There is a little fabric store – italienskamodetyger.se – in Mölndal, where you can always find something special, exclusive and beautiful… this abow fabric was bought there – it is an Armani fabric.

Just in parentheses!


… and I will miss summertime!

Painting Ozzy!

PAINTING OZZY

OZZY himself 😉

FINISHING the painting these days, 2021, februari!
… and it is for sale!

Ozzy – The Painting – has been a company in my studio since 2004 – I´ ve changed some things, it was even

bigger before. Now it is in three pieces instead of five! The Painting was presented at an exhibition at KULTUR

CENTRUM RÖDA STEN 2004, and the painting was also included in an retro-exhibition 2005 at Gallery Art Now.

First this year I have it for sale… as in for real!

titel:

“Yea, though I walk trough the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil”

PAINTING OZZY

For me, this is a very special object/painting… it represents an era, a time when reality shows began… I believe

“The Osbournes” was the first one… wasn’t´t it?

party&birthday – Ozzy behind – 2005

I am the kind of artist, they call a slowart-artist 

THAT REALITY SHOW… THE OSBOURNS!

I needed it… why, I do not know… I very rarely look at things coming through the tv!

… at that time, when I did my life battle on different issues – Ozzy Osbourne show – was just hilarious,

a wonderful window for laffter,

empathy and presens… so, as a reaction to that very special window I summed up my impressions and

experiences in this painting that I gave the title:

“Yea, though I walk trough the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil”

BY offering themselves completely, the family shown a rare courage, and above all, Ozzy in this series – has given a total insight into human life journey!

Ozzy dear!

– between then and now –

The journey we make between young, carefree, angry and boundless – kind of immortal – to age, become

humble, fill the room with humor and self-distance … it was wonderful right then.

I know no one else who showed it so clearly, in such a simple way, so popular and at the same time for real …

it was great!

MASK

GOT MY MASK TODAY

OK, if I can play – as pretending – that I am a smart space-chicken!

😉

… with my own spaceship, then i can cope with it!

There is already some kind of fashion-vibes on these face-things!

… will only use it in crowded spaces!

I Just have to document this very strange moment!

YOU´VJUST HAVE TO to find you´r own way in this contagious atmosphere, to make you´r mind accept it… for the moment there is no other choice. I really do think that this is just a begining of a type of living, for the moment we find it very difficult but somewhere in the future this in some way will be the normal. I am thinking specially at the divine antibiotics that in the rather soon future will lose it´s effect… maybe this will be, in a more development way, the alternative to that scenario! I believe that in the future, like in 10 years, people will look back at these times an feel horrified that we closed down nearly everything… I think it is absolutely urgent to start up all activities.. as in NOW… and it is absolutely urgent to design very comfortable protection alternativs… that people can cope with… find a way to be normal in!

We just have to step out of the anesthesia!!

… right!?

… would love to take a trip out there!

LAST NIHGT I PAINTED…


… last night I painted, Lolita has got her face back… what a process!! …and as many close said to me: – put away the board!

I didn’t – put away the board – so now it remains to be seen if this face holds, if I have found the right one! I kind of believe it, although it might not be possible to trust, hmmm …



COURAGE



THE SCULPTURE – COURAGE – MADE BY ARTIST BENGT OLSON

A Zeppa close-up of “COURAGE”


THIS IS THE SHORT VERSION OF THE FILM “COURAGE”

OBS: there is one 12 minutes long version of COURAGE upcoming


“Courage” is dedicated to Mr Lennart Larsson, who is a great art lover, patron and a very good friend to both Bengt and me. 


“Courage” a story-telling sculpture!

“Courage” speaks to me, every time I pas it… sometimes I believe that some kind of spirit has moved in… or maybe it never left… it only left the quarry when Bengt moved the sculpture to Mölndal.

BENGT OLSON 2018

2017

I want to mention that Bengt received the French, very highly regarded – A Knight Of The Order Of Arts And Letters – 2017.

Bengt is receiving the very highly regarded – a French honorary title as a recognition of “significant contributions to the enrichment of the French cultural inheritance”





My portrait of Bengt

… it has been a long session!

… with many thoughts and sketches – for about three years. – how to portrait Bengt in the most truful way -relevant to my experience!


titel: Deep Dives

ABOUT CREATING CLOTHES

collage – some of – zeppa clothes & creations

COLLAGE-presentation of parts of Zeppa-Creations. This work makes an important  existentiell balance for me towards my painting – where I always move around in the “deep” – creating clothes gives me a wonderful surface… where there is easy to be!

it is a way to speak

… or not to speak… It is a global language. It is so fascinating – all different ways – from the simplest to the most complex! It is wonderful, fun and ingenious. I think that we are rather unconscious concerning the dress-perspective, in general… despite all the fashion and consuming.

PERFORMANCE “PANG”: ONE OF THE MANY SKETCHES – I DID AN INVESTIGATIVE PROCESS ABOOUT THE BODY – CLOUTING – LIGHT&SHADOW INTERACTING WITH THE SPACE IN THE ROOM… FASCINATING! I WISH YOU WERE ALWAYS THIS ADAPTED, IN FACT A BIT LIKE AN OCTOPUS, WHICH IS IMPOSSIBLE… BUT MAYBE WITH CLOTHES YOU CAN BE SO ADAPTED TO YOUR INNER ROOM . THAT IS THE PASSION IN MY CLOTHING CREATION PROCESS.. IT IS IN A VERY EASY HAPPY PLAYFUL CREATIVE WAY! THE OPPOSITE WAY TO MY PAINTING PROCESS WERE I ALWAYS MOVE AROUND IN THE DEEPEST DEEP.

sketches for dance-costume

sketch for dance-costumeto dancer Carmen Olsson

I loved to do these sketches – I made a lot – never shown them before – my interest for fabrics and clothing began with this mission, 2013.

… how the stage costume became!

it became a doorway – a renewed way to think body&room – new insights

 Surface… a blessing for the balance!



And this magic fabrics… that speaks and tell… impossible to resist!

KONSTHALLEN

Gothenburg – Sweden

“VÅR HIMMEL RÖD

19 SEPTEMBER 2020 – 10 JANUARI 2021

“GESTALTAS ERFARENHETER SOM RYMMER ALLT FRÅN KÄRLEK OCH SYSTERSKAP TILL UTSATTHET OCH VÅLD.

MEDVERKANDE KONSTNÄRER ÄR: SARA-VIDE ERICSON, ROXY FARHAT, GABRIELLE GOLIATH, MOA ISRAELSSON OCH JOANNA PIOTROWSKA.”

[KONSTHALLEN]


I WENT TO SE THIS EXHIBITION

… and I had a very speciell experience!

This movie specifically describes my experience of Moa Israelsson´s cocoons !


MOA ISRAELSSON

“Moa Israelssons konstnärskap rör sig ofta i gränslandet mellan fiktion och verklighet, hennes skulpturer liknar föremål vi känner till, men är tillverkade av andra material och dimensioner än vi är vana vid.

Israelssons installation Go, Gone består av tio skulpturer i olika storlekar som hänger från taket. Skulpturerna är formade som stora sovsäckar, mjuka och till synes slitna av yttre åverkan. Stoppningen är synlig och materialet är fläckat, som om det legat ute under lång tid och bearbetats av tidens gång. De omsorgsfullt handsydda skulpturerna vittnar om en stilla vila. Tryggheten sömnen inger, men också sårbarheten. Tyget blir då ett försvar, ett lager mellan kroppen och världen som skyddar och värmer mot det som sker utanför. Verkets titel Go, Gone antyder att något gått förlorat och får sovsäckarna att likna tomma skal. Det enda som återstår är minnet av det som en gång funnits. Samtidigt inger den uppmanande titeln också ett hopp om att lämna förlusten bakom sig och gå vidare, att bli fri, och precis som puppan i en kokong förvandlas och pånyttfödas.

Materialvalet, silke och läder, förstärker känslan av skulpturerna som kokonger, skapade av naturen snarare än syntetiskt framställda av människan. Det är från just silkeskokongen som silkestråden utvinns. De två materialen silke och läder är båda organiska naturmaterial, men samtidigt varandras ytterligheter. Där det ena är ömtåligt och skirt, är det andra tåligt, slitstarkt och grovt. Kontrasten mellan materialen, det skira och mjuka, det grova och smutsiga, bidrar till en känsla av sällsamhet och förfrämligande: föremålen känns bekanta men samtidigt underliga.

Go, Gone, 2019-2020, 10 skulpturer, olika dimensioner, silke och läder.”

Quality Hotel The Weaver

Quality Hotel The Weaver

There is something going on in Mölndal

Two gentlemen – two companies

Petter Stordalen – Nordic Choice & Lennart Larsson – Husvärden AB

MöLndal’s new landmark

The construction is advancing, the building growing taller by the day… the high-profile Quality Hotel The Weaver. It sits within the grounds of Krokslätts Fabriker and will be managed by Nordic Choice.

The First Sod!

As with all Nordic Choice hotels, it aspires to be a welcoming “living room” for staying guests and visitors alike. In due time, when circumstances permit, food will be served, from simple snacks to gourmet dinners, as is the custom at Nordic Choice hotels.

The formidable garage that manages to enhance the area instead of marring it!

GARAGE by Wingård

Something absolutely lovely about this spot!

To the great advantage of the hotel is, on the one hand the main road outside, taking you straight to the city centre, either by car or by tram; on the other, a beautiful wooded area within a short walking distance with prepared tracks for running or rambling.

… incredibly close to The Weaver!

… to capture the energy

 

 

I believe I am going in an transformation… changing my way to work, letting my brushes free! … and it is unbelievable exhausting! … beyond control!

taking a break

 

 

 

painting!

Just a draft, waiting for…

 

 

corona… can it transform to light and pink?

 

TODAY… I think I will die if I get Covid-19… probably not alone in this thoughts. But anyway… if… I hope to go in an enlightened  pink dream…

That fear turns in to courage!

to go in an enlightened pink dream.

work in progress

two trousers in different fabrics became this top… because it became to strange, I looked like a pink S:t Claus,

the Christmas guy!  🙂

 ... my first encounter with the ritual of society ...  I am looking at my godmother who has handed me over to this strange omission - foreign power - not scary, just very strange.
 
... what transformations we go through in life, both bodily and in the personality!

      ... even though the higher self is intact and untouched! The coreof the self is in the photo... exactly the same core as now in grown up life. Wonder what happens with that core when it leaves all the layers of personality?!

Jonathan/OLLIO… a unique person, so very easy to like!

I met him first time 2003 … hmm … a lot of time has passed, many things have happened … I havn´t seen Jonathan since 2005 (I think) Ollio is still who he was and he also looks almost straight that day. Maybe an angel lives in Jonathan … I almost think so! 

I like Ollio’s language, followed his development, and it has been right, clear and strong, really well done, Ollio!!

You know, that song above, here's a little story:So I was in Paris, shared an apartment with a Swede, model on Vouge, one day one of her partners (she had many) wanted to take us out to dinner. I was sitting in the back seat of his skinny sports car, he was a producer. He inserted a cassette… then he said: - By the way, you have to listen… a black girl came in today and left this demon… listen… of course it sounds good! It was her above, Gloria Gaynor !!

You know, that song above
