my anothermicroworld – geology of the soul / metamorphic rocks (9)

greetings from lapland, sirpa

nightless night in lapland, jerisjärvi: my soulscape, and the stairway to heaven on earth.  this funny  jetty is eagerly waiting for the kayak from the shed…and me, to finally head for the water tomorrow. (photo is taken at 22.40 o’clock)

 

my science – my cells (8)

my science – my cells (8): working in concert with one another…to keep outside out, allow necessities in, permit others to leave . the idea to have in the cells a mirror of the circle of live fascinates me!! now that i am in lapland – until ending of august – i feel how these fellows do their job with renewed vigour 😂  mixed media, inter alia airbrush colours, acrylics, resin, embedded in plywood (40 x 40 cm). i love to mix „science“ and emotions in my works!!

should i stay or should i go

fishswarm turquoise

„should i stay or should i go“: acrylic on canvas (100×100 cm). yeah, the universe beneath us is incredible, fantastic in its abundance and variety…i love the swirling amongst the fishswarm while painting in half-trance – and whilst diving in a real, deep sea…(this one was a commissioned work and i had to struggle a very long time until i could even start, but then, it was really flowing. anytime i swear, never again a custom order…till i do it again…😱 (ps: sorry, after posting this work, i realized that the painting was already released earlier !!)

 

 

 

 

lapland impressions (3) – secret life of roots

the work was born last summer (2017) in my cottage in finland/lapland, some 200 kilometers to the north of the arctic circle. i had kind of home chemistry over there, experimenting with different materials: acrylic paints, inks, chemicals, water and fire… i really could enjoy painting to the fullest, ‚cause the sun didn’t set…                                                                                                            mixed media: layered bioresin with acrylics, inks, metallic pigments etc. on metal.
