Hamburger Bahnhof

I really got inspired by the architecture in Berlin, in the way they manage to merge old and modern structures. We went to a kind of suburb… it did´t look really like this… but it felt like it! (below)

sunday meeting

… with Bengt!

(photo above/painting by Bengt Olson above the couch)

 

 

Yesterday I had a long meeting with Swedish-French painter Bengt Olson, who was prepering himself for the tripp back to Paris and to his wife Cric… after an extra long ”staying” in Sweden.

Bengt is telling stories while I am sketching him.  This afternoon he is remembering some disappointments concerning a work… and I must say, that energy adds some intense vibes to the sketch!

mindfullness…




Find the inner room where the noise does not reach!

 The truth is – it is only then as we can understand and clearly perceive what is happening around us outside ourself…. and it´s only then as we can consciously navigate in the outer world!

Unfortunately it is so easy to forgett the inner room…but that is so urgent to be in touch with it …  it should be the main goal!

… to stay connected!

 Only then can we consciously navigate!


 …so it should be the first spot on the list of must-DO!





It is so cool that old theories is becomming a part of everyday use! 



That is future in light!

My Project…

”Through The Looking Glass”

My project, ”Through The Looking Glass”… it is about life in its diverse phases and therefore I have chosen to portray people of various ages, young people in the beginning of theire life’s journey, people in mid-life and people closer to the end of life are represented.

But I want more out of the project  ”Through the Looking Glass”…  through the process of this portray work I want, I hope to reach into the ” room” beyond, on the other side of life… while I am still here in the ”earthly room”. I know it is cracy to say… but I wish to build a bridge… mayby it only will be a poetic bridge… it will be very interesting to see!

… to be continued!

''The Peeping Clown''
”The Peeping Clown” 1979, Oil on canvas, 47”x35.4”/120cmx90cm – painting from earlier stages (signed with my other name) – apperently, evan if it was in my youth, I had the same need… there was something leaking through the wall that I had a need of processing in my work.

 … to understand the ”room” after life!

Will I succeed? Ye… it is not known … that you never know, maybe it’s just something on the road that I will find … something that I have to go this particular route to find! That’s why life is so exciting … we start something with an intention, but have no idea what it will lead to!

We have no idea!

It’s really quite incredible that there is a side of reality that we know nothing about, like a dark hole … we know it exists, we call it anti-matter … something that does not exist … but we can still see ”the something that is not there”, as a dark hole!

Think about those dark hole in the Universe… what if they are gates to the afterlife!!



(shortish)



We know only just the beginning in the existence beyond our earthly reality, and it is beginning with that our life ends! How is that possible, so incredibly exciting … while staggering, terrible, terrible… and we just have to do it alone!


(shortish)


 

(45 min)





What if these two matters are connected?

Dark matter and ”Death matter” (life after death)

… so there are two mysterious matters that we do not know nothing about!

That is my artistic, poetic applied research… totaly unscientifically… to find out…

BIBBI.SPANIEN
My sister Bibbi, 1977 – 15 year – happy and on holydays in spain!

I wonder where Bibbi is now… since she left her bodily existence, august 2015!

?

my sister…


This summer 2015, a sunny august … in the garden.

My sister Bibbi and I had a session in the garden under a small shady apple tree … we knew what was going on… two weeks later Bibbi died.

Thursday, 8/20 2015, my highly and deeply loved sister Bibbi left the earth.

Bibbi, so beautiful, so amazing talented … something the world missed because Bibbi made herself visible only to the family and immediate circle of friends.

I will miss her so much … to see her, to hear her and laugh with her!

Bibbi has always been my first choice of person to show my work … she had a deep, clear and unique picture vision … the best!

Bibbi also had a great knowledge when it came to words, language … all kinds of texts. When she very rarely wrote … it was fantastic!

Bibbi, Bibbi …  I am deeply grateful to all our moments, days, laughter and tears!

Miss you and love you forever!

Your adoring sister Zeppa

Bibbi didn´t belive in life after death! Now… I wonder…

New York 1990


Christmas

soon exactely 25 years agao!

 NOW, 25 YEARS LATER … I can se the same ”Christmas”  energy  in

 Alexander McQueens creations. as in window Christmas  decoration in New York.

 … I remember because I recently got in contact with the 1990s again!

 In December 1990, I went to the USA, with the aim to connect with the art world!

I travelled to New York with a group of people connected to Björn Wetterling.

We visited the studios of some celebreties in the art world as, such as  La Noue, Terence,

Robert Rauschenberg, Frank Stella and James Rosenqvist and some others,

like printers and assistents.

… our meeting with James Roseqvist!

Rosenqvist showing his work and at the same time kindly taking care of us in his studio.

 Robert Rauchenberg

 22 October 1925 – 12 May 2008

Remembering Rauchenberg, By Jim Lewis

 … our visit to his studio!

Rauchenberg´s Studio was the coolest studio I have ever seen… an entire building,

with several floors, studios and living spaces… all very nicly put together.

This goat of Rauchenberg ”lives” among us here in Sweden,

 at Moderna Museet in Stockholm, and the goat has made

a deep, deep impression on me of a kind that I can´t grasp!

Half of the first floor in the Rauchenberg building was a very large room resembling a

churchlike room… so beautiful and such sacred atmosphere.  All of his space did inspire

the mind to different activities… what a creative way to live!

LA Noue, Terence

… our visit to his studio!

We were invited to a coctail party at Terence´s the

 studio before the evening´s visit to the restaurant .

I was especially impressed by one object in his living  room  (beside his work)

… it was a 2000 year old mummy of a little girl… it was very strange

… it had an effect on me… wonder if such company is healthy?

 I worked

 … mostly with two sizes as shown in the photo above. Later, in December, I had a

pleasant break from this work, switching to an interior decorating project where I

was hired to design and create/renew the image of a classic old café in Gothenburg.

The same type of ”Picture Letter” as the group I brougth

to LA were my inspiration for the entire interior project!

Los Angeles  1990

… arriving on 4th December.

I left New York very early in the morning, alone… and extremly nervous, as the taxi driver

who showed up with a wild appearans, chose a way through the very dark park ,

driving like a mad man, mumbling strange words… and an no identifing photo in the

window… I had just heard horror stories with clear directives: don´t travel with taxi drivers

without a photo ID! I arrived in L A not knowing anyone

at all… but with clear focus, my trip was planned!

 ART FAIR and PATRONNES DINNER

In connection with The Art Fair I did meet Mr Joel Kessler who very generously

invited me to different events and introduced me to different people… … as like for the

big  party at Karen and Tony Barones Studio in Venice, in some way related to L A Art fair.
