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).

last night at 02.30 AM: july’s total moon eclipse in lapland (28.07.2018)

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)

 

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!!

 

lapland impressions (6) – frosty

lapland impressions (6) – frosty. this work came to life last summer in my cottage in lapland: an experiment in highly playful way…and it was such fun working with these materials 🙌 mixed media: alcohol inks, alu-foil, layered resin on ceramic and wood.

lapland impressions (5) – antlers as an offering to the mother earth

lapland impressions (5) – antlers as an offering to the mother earth (sami-folk believes that the spirit of life is living in the reindeer antlers). mixed media, alcohol inks, acrylics, gold pigments, resin etc. on ceramics and wood.

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 !!)
