Zeppa & the Dragon


I have opened a window… and it is not the window of my studio!

😉

film 1.30 min

I look out – I see a sky – and it’s filled with creatures – some find their way into my rooms… and that’s what my new project is all about! What I meet in the outside world & what I meet online!

VIGIL

VIGIL

I portray the death and the burial of

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!

mixed technique of charcoal sketches that were later digitally assembled – it can become a work for print.

THE LEGACY

THIS HEIR, behind me… this baby -25 years old – how is that possible

… wonder if he’ll pop out when he’s done? 
My hands, or my will is teaching me things my head doesn’t know

… sooo, wondering what will come of this..

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.

Upcoming LOGO-language

So lucky to have connected with an inner form

raw sketches


my new logo-language!

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!
