My recent portefolio started with this painting. It was at the end of 2003.
This painting, Pantha Rei taught me where I belong. That I belong, in spite of anyone. What I believe in. The freedom we have. The respect we should have for the nature we are a part of. What nature are. How far we have come in the process of destroying our home, the Earth. It took me almost a year to paint; in thin layers, waiting for the colours to dry exactly right. Feeling the paint in my hand. Experience the difference in texture of every color or combined with others. This painting taught me so much more. It sent me on the journey of my life. And I love it.
Every painting is a journey into the unknown...
Pantha Rei, an impression from The Hubble space telescope from NASA - Orion Nebula

On The Other Side
"On The Other Side" from 2006, is an other expression from the enormous inspiration the Hubble Space Telescope from NASA and their teams has given us for more than 25 years. Stephen Hawking was enlighting us about black holes and how any thing would be sucked in and disappear for ever. So, when you have been sucked into a black hole, I imagined, wouldn't you come out on the other side, in an other dimension? I thought so.....

"Fable" from 2008, a scenery from another Hubble picture, but in the end with no resemblance to the Carina nebula. Painting with love and patience a story or a fable is bound to emerge and express itself in a dance with some weird creatures in a friendly whirl.

Behind The Scenes

The Sun And Beyond
We think we are unique and superior, the humans here on Earth, but there are vast unknown energies out there, and we are just puppets in the waves.

Sunrays Through The Bottom
This painting is from an idea from every day life can turn out to be from outer space or an eagle eye. It's up to the viewer and not up to me really, to give ideas.
A radiation of freedom in red an hot energy.
An abstraction from a white lily to a cyclone of movement.
Eve Of Destruction
Eve Of Destruction
"Eve Of Destruction" is the first painting of an ongoing project. Let us stop and think what is happening around us.
After my "The Sun And Beyond" exhibition, I felt it was time to hit the earth and capture the scenery on our planet just now. The only place where we for the time being can breath and live. It doesn't matter how many excursions out in space we humans use our resources on. No matter how loaded we are with money and power we are helplessly in bonding with our environment on earth.
When I grew up, I heard that "Time was 5 to twelve". That was, I believe, mostly because of the cold war and the atomic bomb. Now, time must be a minute or some seconds to twelve. Power games, hatred and greed releases numerous wars, chemical destructions, genetic manipulations. Ourfauna, which we are a part of is experiencing defaunation and destructive climate changes. Until mankind get rich and gain power by saving the climate nothing will lead us safely out of this. Am I negative? Yes, but I am sensing a new trend......

Sunrise In France
"Sunrise In France" is one my every day skies when living in France for some years. Du-Razès is the very same landscape where the Cathars lived for 800-900 hundred years ago before they were hounted by the catholic church. This landscape is so peaceful and warm one could think the Cathar's spirits were still garding the area.
