-the guilty and the damned-
(Oil on canvas)
I was at a meeting for feminist-men a couple of days ago. It was before this painting was finished. The conversation leader introduced the meeting by reading a list out loud. The list contained the most toxic and harmful of expressions. Most of them where towards women, and some were towards men who wasn't considered manly. During the reading of the list most the atmosphere in the room was very heavy and hurt. For these words weren't meant to be put together into a list like that. We all collectively realized that we all were familiar with these gruesome words. Maybe we didn't find them as harmful when separated, and not concentrated into a long list.  Or maybe we were too scared, or blinded by the greed of social acceptance. Nevertheless we all knew when we heard those words that we all were guilty, guilty for not standing up when words which aren't meant to be spoken were spread like gospel. We have all been a part of the problem. For even though you might disagree, if you don't speak up, you are one of the damned.

-A Sight, Behind Never-Ending Tracks- (oil on Panel 90x120cm)
••••••••••••
The journey into the woods. Pt 7
Autumn, insects, dried roses, dead leafs, and now the rain fell. As I was lying there on the ground I looked at the rain as it hit the glass above. Softly, yet with the force of inevitability. The mirrors came back. In every direction there was a reflection of me. Of the roses, of the rain, the insects, and the autumn. My friend came back. He laid next to me, saw that I was in pain, and comforted me. At this moment I knew clearer than ever before, that I didn't know who I was. My life flashed before my eyes, and so did the life of my friend. I saw that we were connected. I tried to communicate with him, but I couldn't put it to words. All I saw was reflections of myself, and I was deeply confused. Then he looked at me, and we spoke through each other's eyes. I could see a faint movement from his face, traveling to me, and I knew what he said, and who he was.
A lifetime of emotion was transferred in a second. And I fell in love.
So there I was, lying on what seems to be the memorial of my life, completely lost in who I am, an in love with a person who apparently is also me. I loved him for the way we communicated. The way we understood each other. The way we transferred our life's story in a second through our eyes. But since I didn't know who this person that I now loved was, I needed to find that out.

The journey into the woods. Pt 6
My friend stopped me and asked me if I wanted to go on an adventure deeper into the woods. I said yes. So we did. First we walked in a circle, at lest seven times. It was like we were on top of a spinning plate, all the trees went past us, until we realized it was the same tree over and over again. This circular motion reappeared itself in my mind. I didn't understand where we were anymore, and I didn't understand my friends words. I was dragged into a room deep inside myself. I could no longer hear my friend and I was no longer in the forest.
I appeared in a house of mirrors. In the mirrors I saw myself, and I saw this pattern. The inhale and exhale, the circular motion, the starfishes, the silence, the music, the fear, the love, the life and the death.
Then the roof opened. Above me was a gray-blue sky with dull clouds. Orange and red leafs of the crown of an oak. Around me the mirrors turned to glass, and trough them I could see the fallen leafs, and dried roses in the colors of autumn. I laid down, and looked up through the glass roof. On the ground I could hear insects. Movements in the dried leafs. But I didn't stand up, nor did I turn my head. I let them climb on to me, after all there was no difference between them and me now, for I also turned into insects. It's true, my coat, my face, my hands and my whole body was now made out of insects. As some of you know I'm terrified of insects. But what is there to fear when even your tongue is made of insects.

The journey into the woods. Pt 4
We walked along gravel paths that lead us deeper into the woods, we must have walked In circles for I felt a strange feeling of resemblance. We spoke about identity, who we were, who we loved, who we wish loved us. We laid on the ground, looking up on the tree crowns above. Then something strange happened, as we laid there, and spoke about the beauty of the woods, we forgot who we were. My friend asked me if I remembered anything from the time before the woods, and I answered that I didn't. I was now a part of the woods, I didn't remember who I was, for it didn't matter anymore. The trees and my friend was not things external to me, now we were all the same. There was no difference between the earth and my body. If my body would rot and turn into dirt, it wouldn't make any difference, for to me, I was also the dirt, and the wind, and the woods, so there wouldn't be a change at all. My friend spoke and said something I didn't understand. I heard him perfectly clear, but he said "I", and I couldn't grasp the concept of detaching myself from the "unity" that now was the world, and also my body. I felt myself sinking through the earth. Becoming the earth. And I said goodbye to my friend, as the person I knew myself to be, died.

The journey into the woods. Pt 3
Out of nowhere the patterns came. The tall grass was weaving, all simultaneously. Like waves of the sea. The rocks on the ground were gems, colors of green, of rose, of deep blue, purple and orange. The pattern repeated itself everywhere we looked. The stones was arranged in a formation, and the grass and the trees too. 
In the flowered pile of rubble we sat, and looked at all the marvels. The rubbles looked like starfishes, and the earth was slowly breathing. That's when my friend noticed that the pile of rubble, on which we sat, actually was a creature of some sort. It was sleeping, snoring, like a sleeping baby.

The journey into the woods. Pt 2
We kept walking, the sun was making the green leafs glow in a golden hue. Red apples decorated our path which led us to a pile of  flowered rubble. It was on top of a small hill, the surrounding trees were waving, as if they heard a melody we couldn't. Then there was a silence. A silence so soft, it could be touched. It was like a breeze of air flowing through an aspen tree. I felt like one of those leafs, trembling with the force of the wind. Shivering, softly, in slight pain. Yet there was no doubt that we were in the presence of something beautiful.

The journey into the woods. Pt 1
•••
I had a dream.  I was with a friend, the kind of friend you can tell anything. We walked through a path, an ally, surrounded by beautiful oaks and a river running right next to it. It was early morning, birds sang and the sound of the river filled our ears.
After a while of walking and talking we met a field with a couple of cows standing and staring at us. I don't remember what my friend said, but there was something that made me laugh. A sensation of joy ran through me, and I couldn't keep myself standing. I fell to the ground, laughing and smiling. We just laid there looking at the small rocks on the ground, trying to puzzle them together into something bigger.

-Skelett av glas-
Oil and chalk on canvas.
••••••••••••••••••
I had a deep discussion with myself, and came to realize that the dissections I've been running have been extremely important to understand my personal expression. But I believe I've lost some emotion along the way, after all what is art if not a desperate attempt to communicate emotion. So I painted this. I wanted to let myself loose again. To not know what I'm doing and listen to my heart. I'm very pleased with the result. I've been thinking too much for too long, it's time for a renaissance.

I had been reworking this piece for quite some time, changing the direction, covering some parts of it to build new imagery on. But when it all comes down to it, the best I can ever get out of it is an emotionless patchwork of regretted decisions. One of the greatest tools I've ever learnt to use, is the tool of destruction. Even though I've spent quite some time on this, and there are some parts I like and would love to keep, it eventually would be for nothing. So I cut my expenses and kill my darling. It's better this way. Rest In Peace.

I'm working on four different pieces right now, usually I've only painted one at a time, but right now I can't believe how unproductive that seems. I guess I was much faster before, I didn't really pay attention to the craft of painting, it was more about getting emotions out on the canvas. Don't get me wrong that's still Nr 1 priority, but I suppose I've realized over time that in order to truly be proud of my paintings, it's helpful if I really give them the time they deserve.
I guess I'm just working in a different way now a days. You know I'm really into these straight lines and unnatural colors breaking the veil of 'realness'. It's like a dance the way I see it, a fusion of places, people, visions and material of the external world, mashed together with the abstract, the precise and the limitlessness of the internal world. A dissection of self.

This is a 1x1 meter canvas, it'll be dedicated to the first terrorist attack here in Sweden (4/7-17). I think it's a critical point in the history of our nation, it may not have been the incident with the most casualties or anything like that, in comparison to what've happened in Paris or London it may seem insignificant, but what happened to the Bubble of the average Swedish citizen was a massive dent in what we believed to be our invulnerability.

-Conversation with William-
Oil, charcoal, pastels and chalk on canvas.
This is my first portrait, and I'm aiming to do more, there's something very thrilling about knowing someone so well that you can paint a portrait, not only of their visual selfs, but of their person on a more complex level.
This painting was also a sort of therapy for myself, in contrast to 'passenger' which is a very controlled and refined piece, I aimed to paint more from my gut, and to let my emotions get transferred to the painting through violent brushstrokes.
The canvas really took a beating on this one. I scratched and bludgeoned it as one sometimes must to get to the core of things.

I've been wrestling with this painting.. yesterday night (or maybe the day before, I don't know the days blur together now a days) I was really struggling to go to bed, it just nagged me that I couldn't finish the foundation of this new painting. So I stayed up and did my job until I was pleased. Unfortunately when I woke up the day after I was unhappy with it again, at this time the painting were about to become a lonely figure standing in front of a plate with a cooked lobster on it. But then I remembered this drawing that I made almost a month ago, it was a drawing of a single man, standing on the subway station 'slussen' looking at me through the famous patterns of the subway station. I remember it struck me deeply how intensely and unprovoked this man's look was. I still can't figure him out. Maybe that's why I want to paint him.

I'm not sure if this painting ever will be finished, a feeling creeps on to me. A feeling that this painting, no matter how much thought I put into it, will inevitably have a faint hollowness to it. I'll try my best to preform the painter's alternative to CPR, but I must be able to execute my children.
I probably shouldn't become a father.
Anyways as always, if anyone has any questions of something I'd be more than happy to answer them! It's terribly lonely here in my studio.
Sustain altitude.

- Tulips by the window -
My goal with all this, with the Solomon Rude thing, with the long texts, with the continual pattern of uploads (at least I try to have them continual). All this is so that you, you the beholder, can get to know me. Even if we've never met, and even if you're from a completely different cultural background, I want you to be able to get to know me from my texts and artwork. I don't want to tell you how the art is suppose to feel, I just want you to know what I felt, and what I saw, so that you too can see it all! A lot of artists only present their work, and stay very quiet about all the rest. I think it's important to be quiet about the art itself, for as I said, the emotions felt by the beholder needs to be their own reactions, and not directed by me, the artist. But I think it's also important to share, to give, and to include you, the beholder into my world, so that you can see things from my eyes! That's how I want to provoke emotion.
