LAST NIHGT I PAINTED…


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

But it has not worked … so now it remains to be seen if it holds, if I have found the right one, I kind of believe it now, 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!

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.

I MADE THIS STRANGE HEADDRESS IN PAPIÉ MACHÉ It was used later in another context

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

link to the development:





 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

context

This blog post is about my desire to think positively, to look ahead… It´s simply an artist looking at her surroundings and thinking… damn corona! How wonderful it will be when it is over! Many people have been invested at different levels of energi in this project below.

I do care… and I do love to express it!

… through some pictures, some text and

below – 4 – short films!

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.

Have a look here!

… incredibly close to The Weaver!

“on the other side”

ON THE OTHER SIDE

SAFJÄLLET NATURE RESERVE

And another thing!

Close by you will find two attractive neighbours, for anyone in need of either: For your physical  health the well equipped gym Nordic Wellness, and for anyone wishing to enhance their looks, the Art Clinic

Quality Hotel The Weaver

Imagine being able to welcome friends and clients here, to stay for a night or more, to hang out, to socialize … pure pleasure!

I can see myself asking friends (in Swedish) “Ska vi träffas på Vävaren?”

… sounds good, doesn´t it !?

😉

KROKSLÄTTS FABRIKER…IT IS a realLy nice place!

… and I will tell you more about that another time!

artist Bengt Olson. See if you can follow, listen and take in the essence of this sculpture for about 16 minutes. Just sit back and relax!

 pressure today

… 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?!

The Robot Artist-Zeppa

WHO IS SHE?… just entering my studio!

This is about Artificial Intelligence … it’s about what’s coming, which is actually already here, even though we don’t really see it yet … but we soon will.

For My part, a robot artist has already walked in … one who even thinks that I should work as her assistant … DUH!!

… it’s both humorous but also a bit brutal,

it’s like no ordinary pick-nick… so to speak!

PS: this post is a sketch, the beginning of a project!
