Where is Ai Weiwei?

Does anybody know?

I finished the painting and added the question in Punk Pink.

Oil and spray paint on plywood, 90 x 90 cm.

I am thinking about returning to my street art project and placing this piece in a public place somewhere. We will see what I can come up with…

I bought a book about Ai Weiwei at Louisiana in Denmark last week. Let me quote: “In Ai Weiwei’s view it is impossible to have ‘a real civil society, a democratic society, unless people take responsibility’.” When schools collapse too easily in Chinese earthquakes, or when nuclear plants blow up as a result of tsunamis, etc. the apology “So Sorry” is expressed by governments, industries, and financial corporations in an effort to make up for wrongdoings and tragedies – though often without shouldering the consequences or taking any meaningful responsibility. It is easy to say “So Sorry”, but what does it mean to take responsibility? I once heard a man say we need to “Slow Down”… Maybe Less is More?

Easter Exhibition

The Easter weekend has been unreal! Fantastic weather, very little wind, great temperatures, and lots of people enjoying it all! A few pictures from my exhibition:

Ai Wei Wei

Where is Ai Wei Wei? Is he alive? Was he too brave? Out of sympathy I have made a poor effort at painting him in action, speaking out for freedom and truth.

Oil on plywood, 90 x 90 cm. I don’t know if it is finished yet.

Preparations for Easter Exhibition

I have not updated the blog in a while, have been too busy preparing…

Welcome to the Easter Exhibition in my studio!
