My wish

28 Sep

Sometimes I think that if I had one wish I would like to have more hours in my day. The time goes by so fast…

Last week I had the flue and was stuck in bed all day. Suddenly the time went by so slowly. I had a good time for thinking. I think sometimes the body and the mind say stop, they need to review and rethink and see the prospect.

Sometimes I think about why I am doing my work. Today we can create magic with our technology and of course money. We can create it very fast and we can do thousands of copies in one day. We don´t have to do much work, we can copy and paste. Money is time and time is money we say.

In my bed I saw a documentary from the old masters. Some of the masterpieces took many years to create, but after 500 or 1000 years we are still breathtaken by their work. Today we have much better tools and equipment to create things but we don´t give us the time to do them. I don´t think we have much left of our ambition today to create things that will be remembered after 500 years.

I am not comparing myself with the old masters and I don´t know if my work will live the test of time, but I think I share the same fire. The fire of creating. The magic to see and feel and create from that something that is original, something no one can copy or steal.

And I love every part of this process. And when my work speaks to another person, I got a reason to go on and I find the meaning of why I do my work.

This is a start for a new work but it don´t want to continue and than it simply have to wait for the right time ………

Abstract World

9 Sep

My last exhibition was, ABSTRACT  WORLD ,, For me we have less and less respect for the people and for the nature. And we are losing our natural connecting with the nature and   automatically we lost connect with ourselves. The last Century with Technologies Explosion change ore life and in some way I think it makes our life more complicated and less fulfill.  Everything must to be fast and what we have today is obsolete tomorrow. The things we buy is cheaper and the quality of things is less, we don´t repair we by new things. And we buy without thinking, sometimes to fill up our emptiness and sometimes just because it is cheap.  We don´t think about where this come from and why it is cheap. Is it normal that clothes are cheaper and the fabric to make the clothes? Is it normal, that buy new things is cheaper and repair? We are having Mountains of garbage. And unfortunately we have cheap workers sometimes children in Indonesia and China to work for us and sometimes like a slaves.  But this is the Economy and this is the message we become every day, we have to have this and that to be accepted and to feel good. Therefore the more we buy the wheel of the Money system rotates and work for small group of people that controls the world.  And nothing is sacred, if it makes money it is okay……And as more we have the more we are empty, we have lost the feeling to wait and looking forward to have things….

I don´t know if this superfluity environment that leads me to the way of my life where I like to recycling and work from what comes to me. I like my life in a quiet rhythm there I feel the nature change from the summer to the fall, I feel the sadness when the leaves are falling and the flower time is over, but I also find some energy in this time of new colours.  I feel rich in my soul. Sometimes I also feel empty in my heart, sometimes I feel sad, we can´t have the sun every day. But after the rain the sun is brighter and that is life….
