Christmas exhibition

exhibition

The open association of Kragerø-based artists "Bølgeblikk" exhibiting at the gallery of Kragerø art association. I participated in mounting the exhibition, which is always quite challenging when there really is no common denominator apart from belonging to an artist association.. We did the job, though, and people thought it was a well mounted exhibition.

My works are the three in the middle.

Livingroom view - summer



As I went through some photos on my computer, I found these from last summer, it's the view from our living room. They are quite representative of this past summer, very wet and very green.

We often see deers in our garden. Beautiful yes, but also a big problem if you want to grow things. The fencing of our vegetable garden was something of a project, but the deers have no respect: They jump over, or else crawl under it, and eat whatever they fancy.

In the cabin



A weekend in Rauland, in the cabin, no kids. Did some walking, eating, relaxing and reading. Some rain, but nice to stay inside too.

The romantic forest (Per Kirkeby and Efterklang, Denmark)






Stills from the 1970 film Den romantiske skoven - Dyrehaven by Per Kirkeby and Jørgen Leth. The Danish band Efterklang uses material from this film for their video Modern Drift. It's in color and very beautiful, the song is very nice too.

The Ash Dome, David Nash



"...But one of Nash’s most impressive and widely hailed works can never be moved anywhere. Further down the Vale of Ffestiniog, where he stayed with his grandfather as a child, are four acres of prime Welsh woodland surrounded by grand, dome-like hills. Having inherited this terrain, Nash decided to plant 22 ash trees there in the late-1970s. He chose ash because it is a very resilient tree, forever contorting itself in order to seek the light. And over the decades, with the help of careful pruning, and splashing of faux fox’s urine to keep the bark-stripping squirrels away, Nash has made Ash Dome grow into an impressive natural sculpture that echoes the forms of the encircling hills.
Nash loves working with wood. ‘There’s a profound wisdom there, stretching over millennia,’ he tells me. ‘I take my cue from what the material suggests to me. And this exhibition will reveal 40 years of my research. I am a researcher into the science and anthropology of trees and the wood they produce. For every culture and civilisation, wood is a fundamental survival material for building, defending, cooking and so much more. I’m also a maker of objects that are motivated by an idea, an attitude of a healthy relationship with our outer skin, the environment." (excerpt from interview found here)

Rural spring







Green, green, green and some brown. And a slight problem above the horizon...
