Unending Dream

Noon.
No one around.
I walk this path,
deep
into spring.
An unending,
green dream.

A sunny, warm spring day. It is quiet in the forest, not a breath of wind, no one to be seen. As I walk deeper into the forest, the young greenery closes me off more and more from the busy world. I walk on slowly, as if in a dream....

'Unending Dream' is a new artwork in my collections 'The Narrow Path' and 'Digital Art'.

First Kiss Of Light

A bright morning arrives fresh and new
Pine trees lean toward the first kiss of light
We walk together among the trees
as the sun climbs into a warm spring day

Go for a walk early in the morning and keep your eyes open for that first kiss !

Rooted

Stillness in your heart
The roots of a tree
in a November storm

In all the turmoil of the world, there are trees that remain standing perfectly straight. Offering protection and holding on no matter how severe the storm rages around them. Deeply rooted, connected to the earth and to the trees around them.
Find what connects you to the earth and to people around you, find your stillness. Cherish it and hold on to it. If something or someone doesn't bring you stillness, let go.

In A Dream

In a dream

you came to me on the silver
of a winter morning

Without a sound

you disappeared
into the light

Frozen Sunrise

My wife Anuscka and I do not celebrate Christmas.
So my wish for all of you is somewhat different from the traditional Christmas greeting:

I wish you silent days, with a light in your heart for the earth, for nature and for all the needy people.

Whatever you celebrate today, make it a beautiful, colorful day, and take a moment to think and care about all that is vulnerable and needy on this earth.

And Then The Sun Stood Still

The word ‘solstice’ comes from the Latin solstitium meaning ‘Sun stands still’, because it seems that the movement of the Sun’s path, whether north or south, stops for a few days before reversing direction. On the Northern hemisphere, winter solstice means that the light returns: the sun turns towards us again. The days grow longer and the light regains its dominance.

I love this time of the year, in which the whole cosmos seems to come to a standstill for a moment.

I wish you peaceful dark days, filled with warmth, lights in the home and in the heart, and time to enjoy the silence and beauty of nature at rest. May we absorb a piece of that into our bodies and minds so that we can begin the new season of light full of energy.

‘And Then The Sun Stood Still’ is a new artwork in my collection ‘Secret Places’.

Entangled In Sunlight

Branches entangled
Birds swallowed in sunlight
Even the leaves do not move
Fragrance of Summer

A warm day early in the summer, it is windless. The dense foliage filters the sunlight. Birds sing, but are invisible in the golden-green light.

'Entangled In Sunlight' is a new artwork in my collection 'The Narrow Path'.
For this artwork, I used one of my own impressionist photographs and a fragment of an abstract expressionist painting by the Canadian painter Jules D .
Thank you Jules, for allowing me to fuse fragments of your artwork with my photographs, to create a new work !

Colorful Days

I have enjoyed converting a small selection of my forest photographs into intensely dark black and white artworks. They were of course meant to express my concern about the climate and the lack of climate action.

But they have also become a new way for me to look at my earlier work. After I finished the black and white works, I felt a great need to do something with colors. Much bolder colors than what you generally see in my work, sunsets excepted.
I asked myself: how do we prevent the forests from becoming as dark and gloomy as in the black-and-white photos. How do we bring back color where it is needed, and keep the colors that are still present from fading?

And then, Black Friday came into sight, so I read in various newsletters and posts on LinkedIn... The desire to make a statement against it was strong.

And so the series "Colorful Days" was born.

Colorful Days - A call to restore and preserve the multi-coloured nature
Colorful Days

Preserving color by degrowth

It is an indictment of the greed for buying, the unbridled consumption that many people, living in so-called "developed countries," practice on a daily basis.
The works ask you and everybody who sees them the question, "What have you done to preserve my color, to restore colors where they are fading, to bring more color into the gray world that people create around them and where there is no place for nature anymore."

Colorful Twilight

An appeal to you too

They call on you to boycott the increasing number of "black days" like Black Friday. Days that further fuel humanity's consumerism. They are telling you that living with nature, preserving and restoring nature, is only possible if Western man consumes significantly less. And what we consume, must be produced colorfully, that is, in harmony with nature.
