Zolo Gallery in waiting…

Zolo Gallery… at least it is not empty. Some of my new line pieces are there to indicate a future. Maybe the first show will be something about New Mexico? Probably end of November.newzol7newzol8newzol9newzol10

Porpoise with a Purpose

I just remembered: I did paint some during the summer. A small painting as a birthday present for a young woman who has been doing a research project about porpoises this summer around Kullaberg. The piece is only 15 x 30 cm, oil on plywood. (She was excited!)porpoise

Zolo Gallery – today the logos came up and the news is official

New logos on clean windows. Info to the locals. Fun!newzol3newzol5newzol6newzol4Late 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.

Frank Lloyd Wrong

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.drawing

Meanwhile the steel sculpture is getting rustier in the rain we are now finally receiving.steel47steel48

Sold: Pablo’s secret

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.PablosSecret-30x9x9

More lines

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.lines10lines11lines12lines13All these pieces are 15 cm wide.
