I seek out look for new shapes and images within my themes using different materials, but my favorite is glass for its plasticity and abi... [more]

Flowers of innocence  
5/21/15 Posted 5/21/15

FLOWERS OF INNOCENCE Why is it that so important, it is at the same time so trivial? Why to paint flowers, then we condemn ourselves to be called tandeto artists, decorative and superficial "the transformers' reality? Why do not we have another, as a universal symbol of beauty? Why, then, when we look at growing flowers in macro-scale, eg. The whole top of tulips and gardenia, feel the emotion and joy? Why, then, when we grow flowers in a pot, on a piece of cotton wool, experiencing betrayal, a... [more]

Lage Lindell, Sweden (1920-1980)  
5/7/15 Posted 5/7/15

Lage Lindell had an aesthetic that slid into an existential relationship between the artist, and audience. The images would interfere with the visitors in the room, he disliked framed paintings. Cut out shapes that he pinned to the wall. Pressed in the series figures on plexiglass, which could hang freely, and those who stayed up and watched experienced how the image figures rhythmically mingled with the people around. Art was a part of life. [more]

My first ever blog--only 20 or more years late  
5/5/15 Posted 5/5/15

Though I had a 30 year retrospective more than 10 years ago (2004), this is my first ever blog entry. I am now over 70 and have been doing my art since age five.

In 1952 at age nine, my work was chosen for an exhibit of childrens work at the Museum of Modern Art in New York. Over the intervening years I have exhi... [more]
