Back to life after another break

music : silence
drink : orange juice
mood : blah

ok, i have to admit, i will never gain a blogger-of-the-world reward – yet another 4 months are gone, and i havent posted a sigle line since my last update, even though i promised. lets catch up a bit!

so, i finally finished a new image, which was shot in january with a wonderful model and a sweetest person Elisa Henny. we hooked up on facebook, met at Langage des Visceres in december, and it all resulted in a photosession later on. i allowed myself to experiment a bit with brushes this time but i kept my favourite colors, so i guess its somewhat of a mix between the old and the new. special thanks to Elisa for this!

events-wise i came back from paris a week ago, where i had yet another exhibition, this time at the famous bar Les Furieux – i must confess i didnt expect much from it but the set up turned out really great, better than in some galleries actually, and we had a blast at the opening, with free drinks and all our friends attending (yes, you missed the opportunity to see me wasted, if you havent been there!). strangely enough, i managed to bump into 3 girls from oslo, one of them being a customer in the bar where i work – the world is way too small, isnt it?

the next collective show is happening in paris again, and is called Corrosive Container – the organizers are the people from the X lab gallery in Berlin, where we exhibited last year. dont miss this one – the artworks represented in this event are very impressive, and even though i wont be attending the opening, you’ll get to meet some of the other cool artists instead!

back in winter i also collaborated with a good friend of mine and a very special photographerAurelie Dorianne Wotton. we met a lot on various parisian gatherings and i happily agreed to pose for her. this is completely different from what i usually do, no photoshop involved – just flash, long exposure and gloomy b/w atmosphere. i am quite satisfied with the results, its always fun to try something new, and actually we are conspiring to create together again! more of Dorianne’s works can be seen here.

i also fooled around with artificial light, probably for the first time in my own room, when the days were short and dark back in december – as a result, another self-portrait, voila :

other than that.. hmmm, i think i spend too much time at work – which is the bestest rock bar in oslo, let me remind you – and since i dont have anything else to entertain you with, here is a picture of me bartending at the Inferno kick off party, darkish and blurry, just as its supposed to be.

ive got a lot of exciting plans for the nearest future, namely a couple of travels, a shoot with a fantastic french model (intrigued?) and some more.

so as always, stay tuned!
