ZEPPA – ZERTIFIED – how to avoid the scams in art!

Today is teming up with talented counterfeiters
one way – my way – of guaranteeing original quality is THROUGH a
”Zeppa-Zertified”

 

  WHY IS IT IMPORTANT that the person who sings off the board is the same person who painted the painting? 

Except

– that you do not want to be cheated!

… and in addition to paying for a lot more underlying work than just the fact that one purchase!  All crafts are impregnate by variably unseen forces! According to me – it is extremely important what you bring home – for you who do not know, to you’r awareness, an object is just a capsule, a shell filled with just the exact energy that it was made by!

 

The great thing about buying a work of art is, in my opinion, that you besides the image, do take part of the artist’s invisible presence – you simply purchase an animated object – it cannot get more exclusive than that! That is what you are buying when buying a work of art.

safety.44

” Zeppa-Zertified ” is:

= an hair collection in a safe deposit boxes from a selected individual who is no longer alive!

… to avoid any “accidents”

😉

– from this hair collection you use a piece of hair each time you sign you’r artwork –  hair must always be in a certain measure, such as 2 cm, unless it does not apply even if it is the right DNA, it is to eliminate cheating alternatives to open the capsule and cut a piece of the hair, to use for other work.

mounted.xx

Mount the hair shaft in papie mache (above) and rap the it  in some plastic or evan better tin foil paper, and then put the package in a ”capsule” , and mount it on the artwork. The ”capsule” can for example be made in paipé mache, wood or plaster.

VALDA.TRE

You mount the ”capsule” with suitable glue!

The ”capsule” is encapsulated in a mounted area of the object… and if you ever want to check the authenticity of a painting of me – or perhaps another artist who chooses this method –

you should be able to submit the painting to get an DNA-analysis. With professional help, lift the seal with a scalpel  and do DNA analysis of the hair shaft and comparing it with an analysis… and then, with a witness – of course, restore the capsule.


As for my works – it probably will be accessible on my website.

 ”Fauteuil-caramel”

Below – samples of a work of art, that is part of a series of paintings that I call  ”Fauteuil-caramels” … and of course, there is the new addition to it, a DNA sealing!

SKA

It’s about the will… the will to grow – to move – to fill one’s given space!

The will to step out of a mold.

For the art loving decorator

is complete – A stand-alone – but it also works expressively to combine several of them

1/ I will process this images digitally.

2/ The images will be printed – with the highest quality on synthetic canvas –

3/ Then hand painted In selected areas with oil paint.

So these works are intended, in such a way that the decorator should be able to combine pieces in the desired color combination, in the desired size and in different directions – horizontally or vertically. There are exciting movements no matter how you choose. I think it adds something extra interesting when the recipient gets the opportunity if desired, to integrate with the work and thus take part in the creation … become co-creative!

PS

New parts are under development!

TEASER – Nature Remains

Zeppa in collaboration with Carmen Olsson

at the residence: road 45 – Trollhättan’s art gallery

dancer Carmen Olsson:

To complete the art work_The Divine Motherhood

There will be updates on the progress of this work during the summer – this is part one!

film _ 2 min

IT WAS once thought that this person – Maud Adams – the bond woman – would be portrayed. To get to know her face I did plaster casting on her face. Some (long) time disappeared, other things came in between, but now finally this summer the work will be completed.


The meetings were too few, so I took Maud’s face into this sculpture instead. As this sculpture is about The Divine Motherhood… and as I think Maud is a lovely person – really sweet – as beautiful on the inside as on the outside!

I used her face to embodied the Divine mother – the queen of motherhood – a tribute to all mothers.

This mother figure with the ability to love all her children without reservation

… in her lap she has a tiger cub and a lamb!

You never know when it is the last time you see your friend…

Mölndals Museum – fantomen klubben på besök

MÅLNINGEN har stannat i min ateljé i alla år, förutom en vistelse på några månader på Mölndals museum, för ca 6-7 år sedan. Vid ett tillfälle höll jag ett föredrag för Sveriges fantomen klubb, ett antal herrar, som befann sig spå bokmässan, hade hört talas om tavlan, hörde av sig till Mölndals museum, de bad om ett litet föredrag av konstnären… kunde jag ju inte motstå… samtidigt lite “odd” att berätta att jag fått en baby med fantomen för en grupp herrar… underliga situationer man kan hamna i, men jag tror att de hade kul!. De ville så gärna höra om denna tavlas tillkomst och varför!

Phantom baby-Armstrong


THE PAINTING has stayed in my studio for all the years, except for a stay of a few months at Mölndal’s museum, about 6-7 years ago. On one occasion I gave a lecture for the Swedish Phantom Club, a number of gentlemen, who were at the book fair, had heard about the painting, heard from Mölndal’s museum, they asked for a small lecture by the artist and that I could not resist … at the same time a little “odd” to tell that I had a baby with the phantom for a group of gentlemen … strange situations you can end up in, but I think they had fun !. They really wanted to hear about the origins of this painting and why!

It is a fantastic entrance to the area where the art gallery is located … it offers both depth, excitement and incomparable possibilities, if you think about this rabbit’s presence.

Carmen Olsson has been given a residence in Trollhättan’s art gallery – and so has the textil artist Pernilla Eskilsson – starting soon. It is possible to visit the art gallery during this time:

25 april – 22 maj

A Dragon Has Come Out Of Its Cave



You can beat the Dragon with your mind

… doesn’t matter if it is an outsider or insider Dragon – it is not easy, you have to practice, every day – to sharpen your focus. The Dragon’s nourishment is your fear, your despair, or your lack of direction.

… and, the truth is, I do not know how to do this … I just know it’s so!


titel: Meet you self in the mirror – and ask your self – Where Are You?

ZEPPA – FASHION

I think I am preparing my self for the infamous dragon people from outer space!!

FABRIC lizard

Sometimes I get stuck in a fabric store and get so fascinated by fabrics, so between painting and film, I squeeze in the creation of clothes … everything flows, can not be stopped, the latest addition is these

“lizard pants” & “lizard skirt”

Spirituel Tram Impressions

I think that it is in some ways like go into a twilight zoon when traveling by tram in Gothenburg. On the one hand, the trams that go here are often from the 70’s … it feels really strange, considering how everything else has developed since then! And besides, it’s always a bit special because you get trapped in a vehicle with unknown people, all with their different energy bubbles. I will work in this painting like an experiment. I will see if I can land in an abstract description of a moment on a tram… without any people being seen … really nothing should be seen, just felt!

An artist’s defense speech


so-called artist – like myself – you do not choose, it is only in your genes. It’s a blessing – you live a rich inner life. but it is also horrible, vulnerable and omitting. you stand outside your surroundings …

you are visible but almost never seen…


People in the immediate environment are quite often provoked by the person you are … I do not know why … even those closest to you … it is sometimes very lonely, very sad…



Many times I have been extremely hurt … but I have been quiet about it, because I understand that they do not see… did not understand, or chose not to understand … in any case … why do you/we so easily forget respect … the most monumentally important thing… most important human trait!



I guess we can all feel that way … maybe …

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!

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 …



ABOUT CREATING CLOTHES

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

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.

[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.”
