my anothermicroworld – soul gems

this is the beginning of another story about my resin celebrations: my crazy creativity achieved last year a bit excessive dimensions. heavy resinworks greet me at every corner in my atelier. an ideal solution for „a little something“ in between heavy „meals“ was quasi born from necessity…i started with resin jewellery, as they go down easily and don’t need a huge space, so i thought. now i am infatuated with their brilliant character, and slowly but surely even every last nook and cranny fills rapidly. so what…every last inch of mine is fulfilled, too, and that’s what counts 🙂

here some more greetings from finnish lapland, good 200 km above the arctic circle. enjoying the sun – for less than an hour. this is a place – if summer or winter – to recharge batteries. a scape full of silent and peaceful energy 😄 it’s all about the magic of the wintertime. when listening to the silence, it is telling so many stories…
almost too beautiful to be true, but the frostbites on my cheeks by – 25° make me to believe it ❄❄

my anothermicroworld – geology of the soul / golden islands (16). mixed media: steelplate, acrylic paints, inks, mixatives, resin – all embedded in plywood (40 x 40 cm). somebody said once about this work: „another circular door for us to open in our minds. once open, we allow ourselves to drift into dreams and experience deep positive feelings.“

a moment of eternity

 

I wished I could share with you this hypnotic and all-enveloping spicy warmth of the woods in the arctic: these intoxicating scents of the forest on the tip of my nose and the sweet kisses by moss and horsetail on my heels…

my anothermicroworld – geology of the soul (24) / mars in me 🔥 🤣

i did see „the bloody moon“ last night, but i glimpsed the moon neither in her true gaudy red colours, nor i glanced the planet mars at all. never mind!! i do carry mars in me 🔥 🤣: this incredible power for the „battle“ of life: vital and confident. mars is kind a patron of my birth month (01.03), and at times i feel his 😈 energy in me 😂: the fiery passion for the pulsing life and the spirit of adventure. this work is a bit an illusion: one sees structures and would like to finger them… an impossible endeavour…all is behind a thick glass clear resin layer 😂. mixed media: acrylic paints, inks, mixatives and resin in wooden canvas (40 x 40 cm).

rupert the red nosed reindeer… in finnish lapland

very sparse population and – as you see – very low level of traffic. o’boys, how i love these velvet-coated antlers in the middle of nowhere!! a reindeer herd is a sort of a super kick-ass matriarchy. a cow decides. it is the leader cow who knows, or decides, where to go: if the ice will hold and when it is time to migrate from the fell country to the lowlands. it’s the leader cow who knows when it is time to return to the calving grounds in the spring. deep within my innermost being i am totally dependent on that clacking sound, the sound of reindeer hooves. it’s almost metaphysical. especially the white reideer – it is for the bliss 😉


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

this is the orbital search for harmony, in the conjunction with each indivdual microworld of mine…to become a complete planet. i hope my soul’s geology – these imaginary sediments – is a visual treat to you. mixed media: acrylics, inks, metallic pigments. all embedded in resin and plywood (40 x 40 cm)

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)
