WHERE IS THE PARADISE?
Out of the same clay original, are arranged in a large wooden structure, measuring 230”x116” .
This work is like an exhibition of it’s own. In europe the emergency number is 112. The clay face was first made in 1993, a daily process in order to capture a state of mind I was in need of at that time… longed for… a God-like state of bliss, happy simplicity and warmth, an eternal gaze that could embrace and forgive the shortcomings of human condition. Later in 1995, the idea with duplication of the face, but with different attributes evolved and I started to mold the faces. When I got the necessary space, a new studio 1997, I started the work to put the faces together… to find the hidden links between their manifestations. Off and on I’v been working at this huge, deep and strange creation … from the dephts of my heart, reaching out to meet and understand the unknown… the only way to reach beyond fear!
2022, and I am still working at it!!
… it’s about connecting within in order to reach out!
Below are some quotes, which I love, they fit so well with this project. I have a person to thank for them – Mikael Lindholm – who could relate to the work from an academic point of view, which was so fantastically enriching for me and for my presentation. It was a meeting between intuitive knowledge and formed knowledge, so exciting in the moment!
below: a little story and some of the faces.
