    In this painting some naked people and a blue dog are caught in a maelstrom. An image of life itself, such as we should see it if should wake up and open our eyes just a bit too much.

      when you say 'an image of life itself, such as we should see it if should wake up and open our eyes' is this a reference to the golden spiral? or reality being percieved through the subconcious mind? some know this as the 'third eye' or any form of meditation witch explores the truth of reality through the subconious mind??
  • Posted by: Max Magnus 2006-06-12
      That's one explanation, another is that if we widen our consciousness enough to see what is actually going on around us we might find that we are living in a constant maelstrom of destruction, and we do best to find a nice wave in it to surf. Both explanations of course overlap somewhat and thus hold different parts of the as always multi-dimensional truth.
  • Posted by: alex covert 2006-06-17
      Very interesting -- I find your art to be very thought provoking, witch i feel is probably the most important characterisitic in art, at least in 2006, in this time of over flowing, creativity raping, brainwashing propaganda being fed to us though tv, music, anything really. I like what you said about multi demensional 'truth'. i think truth is like love -- its everywhere, its endless, and in can be found in as many was as one's thoughts can interpret. Your art leave's much to intrepreation, and thats also another characteristic in it I appriciate.

      Truth is often rather black and white, A indeed equals A, but since truth is multi-dimensional it will sometimes look different depending on which angle it is viewed from. Spoken and written language is linear, and often lacks the exactness you need to describe some "truths" - in a piece of art though, several dimensional threads can be incorporated at once, enabling us to get somewhat closer to this truth.

      Ah, beautiful interpritation of the dreams that lie beneath our eyes when we sleep.

      as i denie technology pain-based and as nature is my friend: link

      perhaps the CIA should carry me to a lab where my brain opened and cables and reading what love is and what the power is the connection to avoid travels to other planets
      i do not want to fight against life
      i told to the animals truthfully that i accept them to control for the good of this ilusion called life

      about being male or fem? is just a variable
      being smart or dumb? is just a random thing

      as a programmer i am bored if life a game i do not want to play and want to become a rock

      Väldigt mysig trappa, med svampar. Men figurerna ser farliga ut

      wow..i luv it..
  • Posted by: ZINKA 2007-07-12
      Spectaular, it just makes you wonder...
  • Posted by: Malin 2007-07-15
      Enastående tavla, lite som att detså längre du vågar dig fram destå mer outgrundlig blir din färd trots att den ser kontrollerad ut i horisonten. Trappan är din väg, svamparna dina vägvisare, mystiken i dimman och de drak likande siluetterna är ditt hot eller kall. Beroende på perspektiv kan man nog se det på otaliga vis. Den är i alla fall klart oemotståndlig enligt min mening.

      Det kommer mera från den här färden.

      This is a superb painting. as a former dungeon Master I have always felt an affinity for Dragons, especially the white specimens as those at the toopo of the stairs represent.
  • Posted by: angel 2008-02-02
      this pictures is amazing. it reminds me of some what like a dream.. cause i love dragons!!! this painting is magical....
  • Posted by: RED ROSE 2008-09-03
      I don't know... i think it talks alot about life itself ... because you take this steps to move on in your life and to climb the stairs until you reach the end ... and die...but you have to be careful all the way up...and every step you take, it becomes more and more dangerous ...
      it's about LIFE

      Jag hittade din hemsida av en ren slump! Tänk vad ett ord på google kan ge. Jag är konst intresserad och målar en del själv. Jag tycker dina tavlor är fantastiska!

    It seems like you got to descend to the far side of hell and back in order to be complete as human. What kind of eventual god demands that?
