and the mini-version

I also made a mini-version of Snow White and Superman (from the art piece for Röselidsskolan). Last time - two years ago - I also made a mini-version. But it turned out not to be so mini - especially when I took it with me on trams and buses - so this time I went for even smaller! I spray painted the couple up on my studio roof, the white just being a base coat though. (but just white is nice too)

... et voilà!

I just have to get back another day to take some photos with kids in the stairs. Because they were having a day off yesterday, which was the reason we chose that day for mounting the art pieces (two other artists also installed their art in other parts of the school the same day). I wonder how the kids reacted today?

Today it finally happened. I'm super exhausted right now, but pleased.

at the industrial powder painter

Today I visited Guson, the industrial powder paint company that I use for my public commissions. There's a layer of grey dust over everything there and the place is probably a location trendy interior stylists would die for.

I inspected all the parts for my commission - perfectly bright coloured looking kind of out of place - and packed them for tomorrow. Because tomorrow it is finally Mounting Day!

continuing with the portal

This week and next I'm concentrating on the portal I'm sketching for the preschool. Having it in real in size - even though it is just in paper - helps me a lot. This art piece is not "just" to be a sculpture, but also something you can use and transform into a theatre. I've had my son (8 years old) interact with it (he loved it!) and next week I'll try it with smaller children.

As it is to be outdoors on the playground, I have to take a lot into consideration when it come to safety restrictions and construction. I'm learning a lot ...

Some photos from the exhibition "Grupptryck" presenting results from the summer course I've been teaching. I've had so hardworking and talented students. It was a pleasure to work with you!

screen printing course and busy days

Friday was the last day of the screen printing course in big format that I've been teaching. We finished off with a two hour exhibition at Friday night. Unfortunately I've been too busy to be able to let you in on this in time - as I also had to finish some things for both my commissioned art piece and send some important applications last week. 

But tomorrow I'll post some photos from my very talented students' exhibition!
