Why do we have such a hard time accepting differences – I wonder – do we want everyone to be the same shape? How do we get our brains to choose wonder instead of judgement?
So longing – today for my painting “Lolita Express”!
Maybe – when I finish ongoing projects – that I go and recreate Lolita – in all the forms she became on one and the same canvas… but many canvases as figures.
Lost Virgin: oil on canvas – approx: 140x 100 cm 1980
Isn’t it the case that there is a lost innocence/virgin in each of us – painful sadness – something significant given that was not recognized – everyone is right in their interpretation of Lost Virgin.
Once I tried to buy back – Lost Virgin – but lo and behold it didn’t work!
Unfortunately, there are many “lost Paintings” from this time zoon – but here are some who made it, a selection!
self learning – how to and how to noT!
I chose in this school of my own to still depict events, feelings and thoughts – it became a type of surrealism – as I see it this way in retrospect.

Two friends who were very important to me, growing up – Soile-best friend/for a while – George, reading the paper, my first great love!
I was very focused on what the truth really is about reality alert to leakage – perceived some kind of spiritual help – to see – while not really knowing a bit about the origin of that help.
I moved away from home shortly after I turned 17 – not because I was ready for it, but because I couldn’t stand the facade of a family that no longer existed.
The world, us – social structures, people, nature – earthly existence scared me so extremely – and actually still does!

The unique fame that Leonardo enjoyed in his lifetime and that, filtered by historical criticism, has remained undimmed to the present day rests largely on his unlimited desire for knowledge, which guided all his thinking and behaviour. An artist by disposition and endowment, he considered his eyes to be his main avenue to knowledge; to Leonardo, sight was man’s highest sense because it alone conveyed the facts of experience immediately, correctly, and with certainty. Hence, every phenomenon perceived became an object of knowledge, and saper vedere (“knowing how to see”) became the great theme of his studies. He applied his creativity to every realm in which graphic representation is used: he was a painter, sculptor, architect, and engineer. But he went even beyond that. He used his superb intellect, unusual powers of observation, and mastery of the art of drawing to study nature itself, a line of inquiry that allowed his dual pursuits of art and science to flouris
When the plague ravaged Europe, when the witch hysteria was boiling in Europe, then Leonardo da Vinci went out and reflected, interpreted and sketched. That’s what I do, but in an updated way. My youtube posts are exactly the same as his sketching. It’s an artistic process – after a while, something – I don’t know what – will come out of it!
I reflect on my surroundings – I just have to!
I don’t think the presentation we generally get of reality matches what reality is!
And I think the word conspiracy theories is used way too much, it gets thrown out as soon as something describes something that the mainstream hasn’t embraced – is the mainstream god?
We must question, we must wonder… otherwise we are a bunch of sheep’s skulls!
About – Maui – and other things
More and more people believe that the fire was started – with some advanced “tool” – it doesn’t match with an ordinary fire – trees remains in the middle of houses that are completely charred.
about the fire – a biologist explains – fire typ microwave
Here a resident man who goes around and registers the land, the houses after the fire.
Starts up with new energy – will be interesting!
The first day at summer vacation!
Rörvik/Näset – in a turquoise self-made dress – my school exam before graduation – I wanted to be a designer. So ambitious. It was an intensive year of home sewing – advanced long coat – suit overall and a lot of other things. It was like that for a while, a year, but at 15 everything collapsed.
I went in to eliminate my wardrobe – it was a big act – of an unconscious kind, it was on pure primal force, intuition and without me realizing at the time – the beginning of my artistry.
Early drawing. In some way, in retrospect, it seems to be a bit about rebelling, dressing up and playing roles…speaking of the difficulty I went through with my wardrobe!
And when I now look a little closer – heaven – it looks like the front figure, the girl in the hat, in triumph puts her foot on a knocked out individual – has she killed? I actually don’t remember. The picture at first looks like child’s play, but on a closer look there is a terrible drama in the picture.
Difficult time - 6 years of much thinking, much wondering - besides existential musings, I know that even dark, haunted things for me, things I’ve seen, experienced that didn’t belong in “furnished rooms”.
Deep revolt against family traditions - things that were boring, without true presence, things that just repeated themselves as an eternal pattern. The parents' marriage began, behind the scenes, to fall apart, and it colored us all.
I had many thoughts about how to be, how to want to be… created ideals!
… many thoughts about human qualities – I was very attentive to how people acted, interacted… I learned a great deal by watching. I spoke very little – some almost never heard my voice, during these years, except absolutely the closest friends.
After these years in a vacuum, I went home to my mother in the countryside – Månstad – where I arranged for my first studio in the basement – I was 21.
I really had a lot to catch up on, in terms of discipline & diet. Forest and magic were outside the house – it provided the nourishment needed to manifest the will.
I did a kind of a Banksy.
This jail-photo on Trump has made him more popular than ever before – now he’s “BRO” to the whole black community – wasn’t he racist?

GSA GALLERY – Martin Wickström – art – Vernissage
I wish I could film more – funnier – deeper – but I put a brake on myself out of respect for the other guests… so therefore it’s a bit tight description of Martin´s beautiful paintings.
But it’s still something
I interpret Marin’s paintings as an expression of memories – safe memories – which perhaps also hide a few things – facades – Probably it is up to the viewer – to remember. I haven’t spoken to Martin about my reflections … so I don’t know if it matches his intentions.

WE WENT TO the EXHIBITION
We were there today – I felt how his brain was moving – how funny – how excited he was/is when the ideas are bubbling – you kind of start playing in his room!
more to come about the visit!
