thoughts about spirituality

My ProjectsPosted by Karsten S 14 Dec, 2014 16:04:31
It startet with a drawing studies of a picture of a monk I had found some time ago.Some time of silence in fresh air gave me the idea to continue on the study of spirituality and most important of all, I searched for my own spiritual guidelines in the process.
Joining an artcourse some ingredients where put into the process. Painting on clothes became a part, inspired by the techniques of the young danish artist Alexander Tovborg I painted and created a serie of pictures expressing my personal impression of spirituality, or the for me visible part of it. People in general often confuse spirituality with religion, but for me this part is a little more complicated as it turnes in that religion is more about power and oppression than spirituality.
The complete serie is not quite finished, but as the course finished I had finished four larger works for the exhibition in Østergade.
Acrylpainting 130 x 95 cm "Monk 1"

Acrylpainting 60 x 80 cm "Monk 2"

Acrylpainting on paper

Acryl Oil Mixed media "Father - Son - Holy Spirit" 40 x 20 , 40 x 40, 40 x 20 canvas.

The exhibited works, the photos did not get so good because of the light in the rooms, sorry.
I will announce when the entire serie is finished. And so far I have not found any religion that would make me believe

A brilliant idea - ARTMONEY

Just need to mention thisPosted by Karsten S 22 Nov, 2014 21:08:12
It was not my idea to start the Artmoney project. This happening I have to cedit to the danish artist Lars Kræmer, but you can read all about the Artmoney history on the website .
I really like the idea of making an alternative valuta and on top of it having fun doing it. So I joined last year. Recently I had 23 artmoneys in the latest Artmoney exhibitions in Copenhagen.
The best is the new website the got running, now I can upload and control the trade on my own. So I am using the dark evenings at the moment to catalog , scan, and sort and than upload all the Artmoneys I have made so far, its going to take some time.

Now you can find the Artmoney I create following this link. It is possible to purchase artmoney from the website with secure paypal payment.

Den dag De Ustandselige ustandselig standsede

Source of inspirationPosted by Karsten S 10 Jul, 2014 00:15:07
In english it means, the dag The Unstopable unstopable stopped. After twenty years of fun and cover music in Pusherstreet the band anounced their last concert the second of July 2014.
I could not resist to start on a painting, no quite finished yet, so no photo of that one.
But as I was baking in the summersun of the danish, for a change summer as summer is supposed to be, I did some aquarell postcards as a study on the motif.
Here you see Nr. 3 of the serie of 7 .

Nr. 7 is not on aquarel paper. you can see all of the cards in my online gallery .

I think I do some more watercolour sheets of this motif. I try to give an expression of the event with the colours and the movement in the lines.
