The height of summer is here! The picture for July is called “My childhood summer”. My mother grew up on a farm, and I remember when I was young, how the whole family got together for the larger jobs. Sowing potatoes early summer, picking them early fall, or drying the hay for the cows in […]
Yet another coastal-romantic old wooden sail-ship image. 40x50cm, photocollage printed on canvas Some days I have so many things to think about, it´s nice to look at a calm picture like this, and dream. And outside it´s summer. And inside I´m happy.
A few weeks ago I visited the ceramic department at HSH, bought some rake-clay, and made these arrows. Seven of them, all different. Now dried, and raw-fired. Next step now is to glaze and gas-fire them. This is by far the favorite part of making rake! Which brings us up to date! Today I´m back, […]
Summer is perfect for sailing. And sailing on an old, proud wooden sailboat must be even better. I´m not a strong sailor at all (stomach-wise), but I am a costal-romantic, so in my dreams, I most certainly sail the seven seas! 40×50 cm, photocollage on canvas
Wow! It´s been a while, haven´t it?! Time flies when you´re having fun! We´ve just ended 3 shows of Far, Far away in Bergen. With a full house on every show. It´s been such an artistic success, with lots of good feedback. My camera was being used to film the show, so I´ve been with […]
” Far, far away” is the title of Kristine Nilsen Oma´s new dance/theatre/performance-show. It´s a personal story of a childhood with a drug-addicted father. Her story is so important, and needs to be seen by teachers, social services-people, police, prison-workers… anyone who work with people, really. This is 50 minutes of sorrow and laughter, of […]
Or more precisely, the painting in the ceiling. Part of the scenography for Far, Far Away. Cold facts about drug-addiction and overdose deaths in Bergen. Tomorrow it´s opening night!
I´m in Bergen, it´s tech-day, and I´ve been working on getting the set for Far, Far Away ready. The set is quite simple, with a few, strong elements. The most obvious of them is a big, red carpet. I´ve cut the edges for an organic feel. My scissors is still sharp, but my fingers are […]
Topping today´s to-do-list was sewing some big, red dices. Not so much to be used as indeed dices, but to be used as stools in the upcoming play Far, Far Away. Opening nigh is in only 8 days, I thought I´d better get a move on it! 😉 It can be a bit hassling to […]
The final copper house for this time. “Make Waves” is another favorite saying of mine. Don´t be shy, live out loud and make some waves!« Previous Entries
