Viking Athene

By spotogspindel | March 24, 2014

Viking Athene is an Eidesvik ship, Christened in 2006. I hand´t any photos from this ship until the Chief Officer sent me some today. I rarely use pastels in my color-scheme, but made an exception here. All these pictures are made in a combination of printed photos, texturizing, overpainting, silk-painting, whitewashing, handwritten text and printed text. The texts are from a series of poems I made, inspired by the raw nature west in the islands, comparing it with the withered souls of human nature.


“Leggja grunnstein til eit savn”, (To lay the foundation-stone for a longing) 120x120cm


“Langs desse strendene” (Along these shores) 120×120 cm


“Glede” (Happiness) 60×60 cm


“Melodi” (Melody), 60×60 cm

It´s funny to see old pictures like this, remembering thoughts I had when I made them, all the things that have happened since, and how my style has evolved.
