ARTIST IN RESIDENT

Pernilla Eskilsson

I had errands for the art gallery in Trollhättan – a work by me, ROOTS was part of Nature Remains&resident Carmen Olsson’s progress – inspiration took hold of me and I slipped into the other resident, Pernilla Eskilsson progress – Cloudy Wagon, I was enchanted and a film is ongoing.

This first part of the film is also in progress. the film is based on an observational, engaging and personal experience of Pernilla’s project.

COURAGE – the film

I pass this sculpture every day – it speaks to me – it has enchanted me and that’s how this movie came about!

“COURAGE” has an inherent

My perspective of a friend and colleague´s sculpture, the
artist Bengt Olson. See if you can follow, listen and take in the essence of this sculpture for about 9 minutes… if so… just sit back and relax!

I admire Bengt’s way of facing life – as it comes, just for each day – constantly changing – he acclimatizes in a strong and present way, it inspires and I hope to draw a little from the insight of that life!

BENGT OLSON

… I never could have imagined that this work would extend between 2016 – 2020 … but it has. It has come through many meetings, many charcoal sketches during our talks … I have not only traveled around Bengt’s planet, it feels like I landed there and sometimes strolled on beautiful beaches, sometimes got lost in dark forests and sometimes we laughed for years absolutely unique fun hauntings from Bengt’s long life.

The portrait has undergone major changes in the meantime … there are probably 10 different expressions before it ended with this last image. it started with seeing Bengt with both torso, cane and hat, but it could not … this became the true experience of my meeting with Bengt. Bengt Olson is specially famous in France, and in the middle of the portrait process he was reworded with a very fine price from France, it was a really great day:

Denna tavlan har en speciell plats i min historia
This painting has a special place in my history

I guess in this case – it’s me who’s Diana!

Jag antar att i det här fallet – är det jag som är Diana!

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!

Tavlan med ett par andra verk blev också omtalat i medier lite här och var.

The painting with a couple of other works was also mentioned in the media a bit here and there.

Trollhättan – konsthall

… Alice in Wonderland?

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

WE ARE – Carmen and I – in some collaboration there during her stay.

… again in the light with new meaning!

Wednesday morning a scenery will be moved from my studio to Trollhättan … again in the light with new meaning… like magically!

IN COLLABORATION



WE ARE working out a performance.

We are building a story, through art, through dance, through film … everything matters, all expressions meet in a vortex and have a life of it’s own … we listen … and we are amazed!

We feel that the way are just as interesting as the finished performance.

TRAVELERS

You never know when it’s the last time you see your friend!

work in progress

How imaginative we are all, so much love there is that we can not handle – that we can not take care of – within ourselves and outside ourselves.

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”


dreaming light

Dreaming light – a Light Dragon – do they exist?

there you go – film – the dragon dress


skirt


and of course – film – the dragon pants

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!
