Om å minnast

eg vil gøyma
deg
under augneloka
henta deg fram
kvar gong eg
let att augo

eg vil gøyma
deg
under huda
stryke deg
med handflata
kvar gong eg frys

eg vil gøyma
deg
i øyrene mine
slik at anden din
voggar meg i søvn

eg vil gøyma deg



Hallelujah

Astronauts




Country: Germany
Software: Painter

This is a commissioned piece I did for "Neo York", a collaborative art book project by New York based design studio Freestyle Collective http://www.freestylecollective.com/ and IdN http://idnworld.com/books/ , to be released in the next couple of months. Completely done in Corel Painter X. I truly believe that an artwork should speak for itself, it has to work even if the viewer doesn't read an instruction manual or the biography of the artist.

NORD











Se oftere mot nord.
Gå mot vinden, du får rødere kinn.
Finn den ulendte stien. Hold den.
Den er kortere.
Nord er best.
Vinterens flammehimmel, sommernattens solmirakel.
Gå mot vinden. Klyv berg.
Se mot nord.
Oftere.
Det er langt dette landet.
Det meste er nord.

Rolf Jacobsen

Shoot The Moon

Piano


Softly, in the dusk, a woman is singing to me;
Taking me back down the vista of years, till I see
A child sitting under the piano, in the boom of the tingling strings
And pressing the small, poised feet of a mother who smiles as she sings.


In spite of myself, the insidious mastery of song
Betrays me back, till the heart of me weeps to belong
To the old Sunday evenings at home, with winter outside
And hymns in the cosy parlour, the tinkling piano our guide.


So now it is vain for the singer to burst into clamour
With the great black piano appassionato. The glamour
Of childish days is upon me, my manhood is cast
Down in the flood of remembrance, I weep like a child for the past. 

 
D. H. Lawrence

What you see



Einstein

If A equals success, then the formula is: A=X+Y+Z. X is work. Y is play. Z is keep your mouth shut.

Waterlily

Now folds the lily all her sweetness up,
  And slips into the bosom of the lake;
    So fold thyself, my dearest, thou, and slip
      Into my bosom, and be lost in me.
      - Lord Alfred Tennyson

About sleeping


If you can't sleep, then get up and do something instead of lying there worrying. It's the worry that gets you, not the lack of sleep.

Art of toilet-paper rolls

The origami sculpture are made by Jacquet Fritz Junior
The creation process and development of the artist is as unique as it is astonishing. The masks are sculpted by hand out of toilet-paper rolls. The pieces are afterwards coated with shellac and different pigments.

Love

Love isn't finding a perfect person, it's finding an imperfect person perfectly.

When The Day Is Short

Courage

Take chances, make mistakes.
That's how you grow.
Pain nourishes your courage.
You have to fail in order to practice being brave.

Zapffe

Verden omkring oss og mennesket selv med sin jeg-følelse og sin livssituation fremstår som det komplette mysterium. Om altets tilblivelse og såkaldte "dypeste væsen" vet vi ingenting. Vi måtte først "vite" hvad det "er" å vite, d.v.s. skaffe oss et par sko som er så trange at vi ikke får dem på før vi har gått med dem en ukes tid.

Nina Cassian

It's like the process of aging.
Just a process.
Your hair starts to grow wilder,
your skin gets smoother,
your appetites increase.
Suddenly, you sing in the shower and in the rain,
you discover a plant you've never seen before
and you munch it.

















 

What's that tiny star on your left temple?
Maybe a bird scratched it with tender claws
to prod you into flying...

- Nina Cassian

Berlin



















Bratwurst salesman at Alexanderplatz in Berlin.

Great days in Berlin, went for the MTV music awards in O2 World thursday to friday, and had a lot of fun!
Not to much time for art and galleries this time, but next trip (soon:)

EMINEM won the award for best male artist 2009.

 

These guys played funky folkmusic on the street and should have been given a prize as well...what an energy!
















And the Norwegian band Yoga Fire won the award for best Norwegian act!
Here with the video Superkul med kniv:

Regler for å være et menneske

DER er ikke bedre enn HER.
Når DER har blitt HER, kommer du bare til å finne et nytt DER
som virker bedre enn HER, hvilket jo var det forrige DER.

Love

A bell is no bell 'til you ring it,
A song is no song 'til you sing it,
And love in your heart
Wasn't put there to stay -
Love isn't love
'Til you give it away.

Oscar Hammerstein
