Today it was my day
off, I have a lot of things to arrange before Christmas time, such as Christmas
gift to family and close friends, ops, it´s not my favorite chore I can tell… it
was a rainy day and my motivation was in a very low level, but now I think all
the Christmas gifts are obtain.
Kanske ett bevis på att kvinnor än en gång ska inspirera men inte själv
agera?! Nu är detta en väldigt gammal idé som växte sig stark i Grekland bland
de gamla grekerna, men som ändå lever kvar lite här och där… man kan kanske vara
glad över att museum verkar ha en feminin bakgrund om man ska tro att just
museum kommer ifrån ordet muserna.
I grekisk mytologi och romersk
mytologi var muserna (på grekiska:
Μουσαι, Mousai) ursprungligen poesins gudinnor. Men blev sedan de
gudinnor som inspirerade även andra konstnärer, filosofer och intellektuella.
De omnämns som gudinnor redan i de tidigaste källorna och tvekade inte att döda
personer som försökte sätta sig upp emot dem (Thamyris dödas av muserna i Iliaden
på grund av att han försökt överträffa dem i sång). Den romerska motsvarigheten
till muserna kallades Camenae.
omtalas muserna som ibland en, ibland flera, sånggudinnor som döttrar
men dessa nämns aldrig vid namn. På Lesbos sades
muserna vara sju och i Delfi tre. Det är först Hesiodos
som omnämner muserna som de nio döttrarna till minnets gudinna, titanenMnemosyne
och guden Zeus.
Vid sidan av dessa nio gudinnor omnämns dessutom tre döttrar till Uranos och Gaia, som alltså skulle
vara äldre än muserna ovan, övningens gudinnaMelete, minnets
och sångens gudinnaAoide.
De nio första är emellertid de som brukar gestaltas i konsten med de
attribut som de fick under hellenistisk tid (se tabell). Eftersom muserna ofta uppträdde
i grupp tillsammans med Apollon kallades han också för Musagetes, musernas ledare, och uppträdde
i fotsid dräkt med
This week I had the opportunity
to be invited to an art club here in Gothenburg and visit the SKF union school hall
or workshops club, this union club has a huge art collection of Albert Amelin
and other artists. I have always liked Albert Amelin but I have never seen so
many of his paintings at the same time and I really really like what I was
seeing. It was great to get close and see his impasto painting, it was really thick
layer I can tell and you have to back to see the images in full scale, if you
look close you only see paint a lot of thick paint. The room and the area was
also very very unique and interesting it was a touched of the 70s.
The artist that I
didn´t exist (off course I don´t know all the artist and I´m terrible bad at
names of artist too, I´m not a namedropping person at all) was Solveig Stampe,
Solveig Stampe is represented at this place with a painting with the name;
Moder Jord/ Earth Mother, I really really like it a lot, I always fall for the
things that has something dark, a strong message willingly with a twist.
Manfred Leuschner guide us around in the hall and
talk about the artist and the art and why it has land up at SKF, this is art
for the industrial worker.
Manfred and I spook before the tour started and we
had a companion in common, my friend Lasse was a college of Manfred, and the
world is small sometimes.
When Manfred had the speech of SKF and the history
about the company SKF and what they have been doing and the how the art had
landed there he mention that “smycket” and he had a common companion, he didn´t
remember my name but he remember that I was working with jeweler/smycken, so under
that evening on the guided tour my name was, smycket. I think it is a great
name and if I someday will have an artist name it will be Smycket Lindblom.
Carlsson Milionen another great artist that was represented at this place, he
had done a comment on Franco, a very strong paining I think and as the painting
by Solveig Stampe it touched me.
good things with this art collection is (I think) that it´s not a catalogue
over the entire artist and their art, I asked about it, but I´m not sure that I
get an answer to it. The last thought about it that it has been great if all
the great art had been market with the artist name, because when you see
something “new” you want to know who has done it, I asked about it and they had
a policy that “ you don´t mark you paintings/art at home” this is the same,
this art will just be here for pleasure… I don´t agree with that argument,
first, at home you know the artist and you can be able to answer if someone ask
you about your art, this is a cultural treasure and it is important that we
remember the story and the year they was made. Even if it not a public hall,
the industrial workers can be interesting and it could be great to a have a catalogue
to look at and show others a catalogue to be proud by.
great evening with a lot of interesting information about SKF and the painting
and other art they have there in the union hall.
can see reportage from SKF verkstadsklubbs collection.
I have a Master of Fine Arts in applied arts and crafts degree, I’m curios about life and I like a lot of things, everyday life things transformed into art is one of my interesting…
Hanging around with friends, travel, reading a good/interesting book is doing my life good.
I will have this blog to showing the times between, the life, the process and all kind of inspiration sources for my art work.
I’m working mostly with body related art; jewellery art, but I also lecturing and working with photo and enamel… My focus is on recycling material in different shapes.
