Queen Elizabeth– the burial of an era – through Beatrice.
I kind of got “struck” by a special person… her grief went right through the window into my studio – it was Beatrice – when she stood in VIGIL. It touched me deeply that they were standing there for public viewing… with their claws – watched by prying eyes – but especially Beatrice – it was heartbreaking – in the same time pure and beautiful!

Art work in the in the final process
THE LEGACY – THE HERITAGE
I want to highlight our inherited fear. As soon as we leave the safe womb, we are so incredibly vulnerable.
In this work – which has been ongoing, from and to, since 1997 – 2022 – I have portrayed my fear of existing in my earthly body, my earthly destiny. And as I see it, everyone else’s fate as well – because I am not alone in being born into a system where violence and power are one of the most controlling forces. After all, there is a counterforce of light and love, but not everyone is blessed to be in that frequency. Despite the fact that “THE LEGACY” has deep roots in a dark part of me, my personality, the work is portrayed with humor. Because humor is a great tool to deal with difficulties. So this little baby, sitting on one side in a crack of the work – is even before leaving the womb – armed! This little heir seems to embrace his destiny even as he thinks: shit! On the other side of the work, his father – the comic book hero The Phantom rides his horse, gun at the ready… my childhood comic book hero, whom I chose to portray as the patriarchal role model.
one way – my way – of guaranteeing original quality is THROUGH a:
WHY IS IT IMPORTANT that the person who sings off the board is the same person who painted the painting?
– 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.
” 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.
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.
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.
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!
”Fauteuil-caramels ”, 2016 acryl/oil on wood, external dimension: 21”x17”/ 53cmx43cm
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!
