My 12 meter painting is now serving as a forum for street artists to create and display works of art in Höganäs. Hope they take the opportunity, as around Folkets Park in Malmö.Helsingborgs Dagblad have written about it today:
New logos on clean windows. Info to the locals. Fun!Late November or early December we are opening our first show. In the meantime we are going to Santa Fe to “re-charge our batteries”. Our plan is to run a gallery with gallery-less artists, young and older. A gallery where you can come in and get a good espresso or cappuccino with a biscotti or occasionally something more substantial (cheesecake or chocolate cake or…) whenever the hostess is in the mood for baking. We also hope to have other activities, more about that later.
My wife calls me Frank Lloyd Wrong. I have been nourishing some old architecture dreams… back in the school days my buddies told me I should study architecture. I never understood what they meant and why they said that, but I guess I should have listened. Now I am humbly helping our neighbors with some ideas about extending their existing house, which has kept me from painting. Among many other things.
A very warm and sunny summer. Most people are either on the beach or trying to avoid the heat otherwise. I am enjoying excellent temperatures in the studio, even though the production is sort of on idle. But I have sold a few Lines pieces and most recently the piece below, which I have not shown in it’s final stage. I call it Pablo’s secret, 30 x 9 x 9 cm.
I am back in the studio. Experimenting with my lines pieces. At first I considered this a pretty relaxing exercise and for a while I was even a bit bored, or just mildly challenged, but the more I work with them, the more I realize that the challenge is quite significant, as it is a constant search for balance, tension, simplicity and harmony. I have added one color to some of the pieces, but think I will go back to just various black and grey shades.All these pieces are 15 cm wide.
