It’s not that they’re stupid but... they’re only intelligent... not wise.
I want to
focus politicians... politicians who senseless intervene in other people's
everyday lives in a very disrespectful manner.
I write this
after I learned to know that politicians have tried, and... from what I
understand, still will try, to take away the copyright from artists who create their
artworks. They’ll transfer the copyright from the creator to the buyer and the
Should I 'speak
my mind' - 'speak frankly'? Why not? I am thinking of politicians who will
always show themselves how important they are, and therefore initiate laws and
rules to tell about their power. They even force their way into what’s best or
not when it comes to art and artists.
I don’t want
to be pretty and decent with great phrases in speech and expression. I just
want to convey what I feel and think as an artist. It doesn’t mean that I will
curse and swear, but that I’ll emphasize some expressions, phrases and issues
that I think are important. I use words that I think are OK, but it’s for sure
that everyone doesn’t agree with me.
make others suffers... no, I don’t like those who don’t use care, sensitivity
and empathy and, put others into situations that make them go through times of
frustration, pain and exhausting stress. Why do many people torment others... make
others live a bad and difficult life?
So... to the
are not known for being the world's most sensitive people. Often said;
"They’re brain stuck," and it's more than truth in it. The brain and
nerves versus heart and emotions means; politicians versus artists.
politicians know artists are humans? Are they not aware that artists can also
have adversity, stress, frustration, anger ... pleasure, enthusiasm, happiness,
expectations ... etc. It seems that politicians only look at artists like
letters and numbers in forms and tables.
politicians say if someone made decisions over their heads and wiped out large
parts of their economic base? There have to be some who, of course, have
greater power than artist have, in proportion to politicians, which have to
take such decisions.
do not understand emotions. They have hidden their emotions deep in the locked
and impenetrable vaults inside their stressful psyche, bottled up their
emotions for so long that they don’t know about the existence of their
emotions. As a protection from their emotions, they stress away from them with
excellent trained cover-up-mechanisms within. Stress is the worst reasons for
illness and death in our days ... I'm just mentioning it. Politicians have no
contact with their emotions, only with their nerves in their deep fear
corridors where, pain and old traumas beat and kick to be free from evil wounds
and anxious memories of the past.
To take away
the rights of what is created by a person, is to take away what’s the
birthright of the the person. It’s not very difficult to understand. --- But...
some idiots of politicians don’t understand. They should be ashamed and hide away, but
these brain-people do not understand. They use numbers, letters, forms,
columns, etc. as a guiding principle in life. Then it’s easy to understand they
Why do these
narrow-minded politicians have so much power? Isn’t it so that politicians
should serve the people ... not the other way around---- Is it because they are
so powerful to argue and scream like wild and blind that they can reach so high
up on the social climber ladder?
They elbow themselves
to influential positions in society to show everyone how important and big they
are, because of their aching inferiority complexes. That was very nice said.
Sorry, but I have to say I get politicians all the way up in my throat when
they come up with such scandalous suggestions as transfer the copyrights from
the artists to the employer, the buyer. Are they envious of artists because
they themselves are not able to create something that’s valuable? They only go
around commanding, playing important.
not hide the truth behind masks.
Who are these
people inside themselves? If they ever go into themselves for understanding a
little bit about themselves? Are they just super-opportunists, act as streakers and status hunters? Again I
will say; 'They should be ashamed', but they do not understand what I mean in
this context. What can I say then?
Do I offend
the politicians? Who is really offending who... when these clueless people try
to take a lot of the basis of the economic base from hundreds and thousands of
artists? Artists do what they can to maintain their lives from where they are
as individual people, and in relation to what they think is best for them to do
in their lives. Why do politicians try to punish them in anyway because of
that? That’s how it looks like.
This is a hit
below the belt from the politicians, but they do not understand it.
say, or have already said; "How do those politicians dare to... etc."
But that just runs off like water of a duck’s back... yes, it’s the matter of
thick-headed politicians. Everyone is closest to themselves, applies well when
many people are in positions of power, and ... they exploit it as much as
possible in their incredible oh so important position -? –
If this is
politician smear-campaign, it’s mild compare to what the politicians put into
action. What they put into action engages in the artists' everyday life more
than what they can understand. Are we not entitled to ’speak our mind’ when
someone threatens to steal the fundamental right to own and manage what we create?
To make them understand is like to break a pole just by looking at it.
I guess I'm
looking like a crazy stallion when I track down those I think should use
caution, consideration and gentleness in relation to other people.
I’ve put one of my psychopath
songs into video; - Art video - Psychopaths are queuing to get power to show
themselves how great they are ... and are nasty when it’s too much resistance
... they’re good to flatter ... they’re in their right element as leaders and
And one more about crooks and
psychopaths... - Art video - Chaotic and hysterical people fight for money and
power ... a disgrace ... as parasites on humanity they’re a tragedy ... – I
wonder if humanity one day will sort it out and put them into their sandboxes
where they belong ...
Politicians don’t know what
and why art exists. They want to be without it. They look at artists as half-nuts
or whole-nuts, don’t see the reason for create anything at all, except new laws
and... be in power to get as much money and status as possible when they’re
politicians. They get confused when it’s talk about art. They have no time for
Politicians don’t like
conscious people. They don’t like those who criticise them. They don’t like
people like artists, journalists, philosophers and, other awakened people. They
smile with their masks but, seethe with rage within. If they get the chance, as
in dictator systems, they would gladly put those unpleasant bastards in prison
and... prosecute them to death sentence, if it was possible.
In a democracy it’s more
difficult to imprison non-believers of their system and themselves. They have
to play the game of being strong and understandable, that they accept, as a
matter of fact, that others have other views than them... but... it’s a mask
When I write; artist... I
mean artist. Not a ‘flower painter’ and other kind of positivism and
superficial expressions from people who try to appear as being an artist.
Neither brain-people, mostly academics, who scream to be as ‘brain-stretching’
as possible, to attract focus on themselves as much as possible... in their
opportunistic hunger for being accepted, respected, adored and loved. Their
expressions go from a dot and/or a line or two, to knick-knack and smearing on
a paper or canvas etc, to foolish poems and other kind of writing or, copying
different kind of music for the sake of being important, hoping no one will
discover it’s copy...
... no... I’m taking about
conscious artists, and other kind of creative people, who put question marks at
themselves and life and, therefore put question marks on politicians and what
they’re doing... and, the politicians don’ t like that.
We human beings are
different. Not everyone understands that... no, not at all... they believe
everyone is an artist. That’s funny.
To be an artist is to be
connected to his/her own soul and personality on a deeper level than common
people. Artists express themselves with creativity as their tool, as a part of
their being. How many times haven’t I been confronted with; how can I being
bothered to use so much time only to paint a painting or writing a book or
composing songs... -?- Don’t I have better things to do?
They will never understand me
or, other creative people.
Artists are not politician
and politicians are not artists. Politicians work in the physical life and it’s
not so difficult for people, also creative people, to make up their mind what
politicians say and do. Quite in another direction are artists, and other
creative people, using forces from sources within, behind the physical life, to
express themselves and, the politicians don’t understand at all, don’t
understand anything else than what they see or hear in their physical world.
As an artist, I feel this
urge to express myself through different artistic ways of expression. Within
everyone of us, it’s a core of creativity which expresses itself in different
forms. If a person has the access, wish and possibility to use the creative force
which pours out from the creative core, in different expressions, the person
can use it. I use my power of creativity very conscious because, my focus on
the creative force is as a matter of course for me... without going further
with explanations here. The power is a never-ending flow... it never stops. We
humans are different. Some has this creative force very alive and forceful,
others haven’t the faintest idea of what it is... yes, for sure... we’re all
different. Everyone has this power, but we’re created different because, not
everyone shall use it because of what purpose they have in their life and... it’s
more or less developed in each of us because; humanity is on different levels
To create is a work I’m doing
alone. My creative energy puts me into a kind of an obsessed mode, where
nothing else than what I’m doing counts. It’s an emotional experience. The
brain is just a tool that has the task to do the creative job as good as
possible. It hasn’t the job to decide what to create or not, but sometimes...
artistic work can be done from a task where a special outcome shall be the
result... as a commissioned work of art. Then the brain is the boss and the emotions
play the part as the ‘flourishing’ helper...
...but... as an artist I
mainly create from the emotional and spiritual level in me. With ‘spiritual’, I
don’t mean religion. Religion is created with a mix of spirituality and
physically realities and, the physically reality is created by men with the
intentions to be masters... then one of the spiritual fundamental truths is
gone. Spirituality is about equality of rights.
Politicians are far away from
those realities. They, unfortunately, only focus on the physical reality. If
they talk about what they believe is spiritual matters, they talk about
religions as spiritual matters. That’s far from what spirituality is and, what the
reasons behind all life is. That’s one of the reasons I’m so far away from
politicians. From these very different views about life, it’s developing
thoughts, beliefs and decisions which are built on different causes and, my
cause isn’t on the same ground as them. We have fundamentally different views
... it can be said; physical versus non-physical.
* It’s one important issue
about politicians; - They’re super sly. They’re ‘chameleons’, ‘weathercocks’...
when it comes to keeping their own benefits in mind. They use every possible
opportunity to take advantages of situations to their own benefit. They easily
promise and talk golden words to gain own advantage. It’s like they’re totally unscrupulous
when it comes to getting goodwill there and then, wherever they are with their
Do politicians only look at
politics as a tool they can enjoy own advantages from like... admiration and
focus from people, status and power, money and materialistic goodies?

Isn’t it a
different between art and entertainment? Should we put art and entertainment
together? How can a child understand art... (if it’s about understanding
art?)... when art tells about deep emotional problems and solutions for those
who seek inwards to understand her/himself and life. How can a child understand
this? It’s in fact a difference between a child and an adult.
We can open
up for barriers between art and entertainment but, for what reason? Let
children and adults decide themselves.
difference between art and art, then I mean between art and design. Design
today is put into the same category as art. Can children understand design...
or just enjoy what they see or touch... if it’s sculptors and other objects?
Yes, they can experience ‘something’, both when it comes to art and design but,
what does that tell and what does it prove? It doesn’t mean that art is design
and design is art.
children can experience and enjoy music but, what kind of music? Beethoven,
Mozart, Grieg or Tchaikovsky... I guess children are more eager about other
kind of music. Disneyland and pop music are more exciting...
Why do some
academics try to put art and entertainment together? Are they trying to drag
art into entertainment to prove that they are artists when they just splash and
throw lines and colours on a paper or canvas, or throw bricks on the floor...
in hysteric acts to be focused and adored, acclaimed as artists?
Do they mean
that artists should be as children and create that way... without absorption
and reflections about life and living?
wrote an article; “Let art be entertainment” and, ended it like this: - “Is it
time to let art into entertainment and to dare to concentrate on art as it
really should be... in fact a kind of entertainment?”
Then I fell
off my chair and on my way down to the floor I thought; Typical academics...
their way of present art to people, by jumping about as fiercely chicken and
goats and spatter ink and painting in north and south and east and west... yes,
funny and very important for those who have to freak out from bottled up
emotions and... when I hit the floor I just relaxed and opened myself to the
floor, lying in silence without frustrations about right and wrong, smiling
entranced to myself... I was thinking: ”So what? Let them do and think what
they want. I follow my own rules.”
honestly... I live my life with my own way of expressing myself without going
to the great depths about what’s art and entertainment. Am I an artist? That
doesn’t matter. I’ll hang my philosophy about life and art on the wall and
relax. No more fight about right and wrong.
But now, I’m
walking into my garden of Surrealism, no matter if it’s art or entertainment.
- Art video
- I don't wanna be fooled by myself and jump into a super-positivism world
where everything is supposed to be cream and honey-bubbles ... no ... I rather aim for floating about in
the Garden of Surrealism ...
to say that art and entertainment are not the same. They’re really two
contrasts. To merge art an entertainment together is unconscious.
rich people want people to get as much entertainment as possible. It’s to drown
people into entertainment. Then important issues about how to rule and make
laws and use executive power and taking advantage of favourable possibilities
behind the scenes, can be done without any criticism and resistance. Dope the
people with entertainment – it gives leaders and money greedy ones free hands
to influence where they want without troublesome interference from people.
is for people to relax and have fun, excitement and other kinds of emotional
reactions. Art is created with completely different intensions. Art is created
as an expression of inner frustrations or, anger or, joy or, satisfaction or...
yes, inner experiences of emotional expression, which will tell what is going
on behind the everyday masks we use to hide ourselves... in fear of being
uncovered as a person with insecurity and low self-image.
its stand on openness and honesty in its expressions, with seriousness as an
important part of life. That’s in contradiction with what entertainment is
about. Entertainment can also dip into seriousness and tragedies etc. besides
stupidity and superficial expressions but, it’s meant as expressions for not be
taken seriously and realistic for teaching about life. Life isn’t only a big
entertainment. For those who don’t know and, haven’t experienced something
else, entertainment is everything but, for those who have experienced life
through many events and resistance... know something else.
only to put all and everything into the same sack and believe we’re all the
same. We’re for sure different and, that’s what makes life to something more
than a flow of similarities. Some aspects in life demands more insight into our
complex emotions and mind than other aspects.
one of my videos about art... as a curiosity; - Art video - The rapture and
power of freedom is as madness in highest potency ... a force that even gods
can’t prevent ... it’s fantastic to enjoy the freedom of madness and, the
madness of freedom, by expressing what you are excited about ...
I don’t see
art as entertainment, as fireworks and galloping positivism. Art is about
emotions and life... art is about what life is about. It doesn’t matter if you
understand it or not. We’re all here in life to learn about life and develop as
much as possible, if we open up for it. To learn might be difficult. That’s why
so many of us meet so much hardship, so much resistance that, some choose to
commit suicide. Life isn’t just a happy-hoppy time of entertainment.
want to mix art and entertainment together may do it as much as they can but...
it’s other aspects of life that always will be with us. It may be tempting
trying to live a superficial and positive life by suppressing pain, wounds and
resistance but, we’re created to make free flow of energy, emotions and mind
for the sake of well being and developing. If we stop it by suppressing the
negative side of life, we interrupt our natural self and end up with different
illnesses and aching health.
comment... negativity, being negative, thinking what’s believed is negative,
acting what’s believed is negative, let negativity have any influence on
decisions, let negativity be a final decision in a case, use negativity as an
argument, dare to be negative... and everything else where negativity shows its
face... is not negative! It’s, in fact, natural for the sake of balance between
negativity and positivism. Being positive, always positive, is for sure
negative but, our culture is so brainwashed by the patriarch systems that, the
belief system in people can’t understand anything else than; positivism is
right in life.
Art can be
both negative and positive but... entertainment must never be negative! It
shall always be positive... period!
entertainment don’t fit together.
snake sneaks in everywhere and gives its toxic positivism-poison wherever it’s

Brain-people have taken over art. Brain ruled
academics. Art today is supposed to be ‘brain-stretching’ … it has nothing to
do with sensitivity, with emotional sparks of life within us ... on the
contrary … the more barren and sterile, the better. The focus is at the
physical world. It’s not about self-examination, self-realization or other ways
of getting insight within for the sake of self-development.
one of my videos; - Art video - What is art today? Where are we in our art
expressions? Who is an artist - who is not? Brain
people believe art is understanding ... as believing a song of a bird is to
understand but, then the beauty and magic of the song and, the bird, disappear
– art is an experience as sensitivity gives insight of life ...
Art in the forms of installation and sculpture, are
for the experience of something different from daily life and yes, that’s
interesting as a life-boost, like travelling about in the world and experience
new surroundings and new ways of behaviour etc. yes, that’s important in
everyone’s life, to expand life experiences ... but ... is it art? It may be
called art in the definition of what’s called art today ... but ... is it art
in the sense of investigate within to find out of one self, life and death and,
deep experiences of emotional life? No, I don’t find any justification or
argument for that.
I believe, more or less, I understand those who are
stuck in their brain, in their mind. They stick together in their knowing that
they’re better and more important than others ... especially equipped with
qualities which is far more on a higher level than others ... yes, the ‘chosen
ones’ ... the elite ... with a super intellect ... --- closing themselves into
small cliques with quasi-intellectual attitude towards everyone. They’re so
over talented, so over important in their snobbish and arrogant belief about
themselves that it’s funny ... and it’s pitiful.
We have become more and more robot like, less and
less human. Carl Gustav Jung, the psychologist, on one of his travels, met a
shaman in Colombia. The shaman said to him “You, the white man, has put
everything up-side-down. Those you give rewards and honour, we treat as sick
people. Those we give rewards and honour, you treat as sick people.” --- With
those words he told that we, the white ones, honour brain-people and put
sensitive people in different hospitals and wards.
The academies teach the students about the physical
approach to art, not about the emotional, psychological and spiritual doors to
open and investigate. Then common people have lost their interest of art and
call it rubbish and stupid and madness, crazy etc. They’re fed up and bored of
stupid artists who only want to attract attention to themselves by being crazy
and wild. Yes, we’ve seen ‘artists’ shit on the floor and pee on the walls,
nailing tables to the wall an hanging chairs from the ceiling. When creating
something on a paper or a canvas, they do whatever they can to attract focus to
themselves, no matter what the result on the paper or canvas is.
Here is one of my videos; - Art video -
Cinepoetry - Is art rubbish ... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ml_53kwjwEg
... but, life is within us, not in the outside
surroundings which the brain is occupied of. The academics are losing
themselves in the outside physical world when they use their brain as their
master ... but ... they don’t understand it.
And … the ‘artists’ fight to sell their art, as
well as galleries and art dealers do it, by screaming out ‘you can get original
art to affordable prices – buy affordable art!’.
The tragedy is that the artists downgrade
themselves and art in general, with good help from galleries and art dealers.
Art has become business on a low level … it’s about money, not about the value
of genuine, honest and self-examination to get insight about life, expressed
through art. --- But … of course, who cares about that?
But … the academics defend it with tooth and nail …
you know, everything can be excused.
Yes … brain-people have taken over our civilisation
and made us idiots. No more sensitivity, only numbers, schemes, forms,
schedules, tables etc. to put people into regulated rubrics … to get the
control. It makes us hard and rigid with no empathy.
Albert Einstein said about the technological
development that, it will end up in creating generations of idiots – with those
words he predicted that cold and analytical brain-people would take over and
make us slaves of the rigid brain … as we see today.
Brain related qualities drain our natural life. We
become hysterical hunters for money and status. We don’t understand what life
----- I saw a video from National Gallery. A man
stood in the main entrance, ready to move into the gallery. He started. Ran as
fast as he could into the gallery, ran all the way through the gallery and
stopped outside the exit door. He had been through the National Gallery, no
doubt about that and, it was done in record time. In record time he had
experienced all the art in the gallery ... yes, it was brain-stretching in the
way academics love it. ----- To experience as much as possible in shortest
possible time. ----- That’s a typical way to think and behave for brain-people
and, when they occupy art and call themselves artists, art has lost its
identity ... it has become an empty shell.
----- (To experience as much as possible in
shortest possible time) -----. I and my fiancé, went to Tate Modern a few
months after we came to London. We had heard much about the gallery and wanted
to experience it ourselves. We went about and looked at artworks on the walls.
After a while we went out through an exit doorway to sit down in the cafeteria
outside the exit doorway. I wanted to absorb what I had seen and talk about it
with my fiancé. After a cup of coffee, we went back through the exit doorway we
had gone through. We wanted to see more.
When we came inside, a female guard stopped us and
told us that we couldn’t come into the gallery via the exit doorway. We hadn’t
thought about it that way. Since we had paid our tickets and were on our art
journey in the gallery, we just wanted to go out for a cup coffee in the side
room and, in again afterwards ... but ... it wasn’t as simple as that.
I explained to the woman that we didn’t know about
the rule about going out and in again through the exit doorway. She didn’t
listen to that. I told her that we had gone through the gallery entrance, delivered
out tickets and, had already seen some art but, wanted to see more after we had
absorbed our impressions with a cup of
coffee. She didn’t listen to that. I continued to explain but, she didn’t
listen, didn’t give any understanding. A male guard, with very visible muscle
attitude, came and stopped behind us, watching us.
If we wanted to be in the gallery, we had to go out
the exit doorway and into the gallery’s main entrance again. It meant that we
had to buy new tickets. That was a catastrophe for us. We didn’t have money for
that. We were on the bottom of any money level. Had lived in London for some
months in a small studio together with what we had of belongings and artworks
... hardly money to rent, almost no money for food ... and ... no money to buy
new tickets to come into the gallery again. We had been extremely proud to pay
our tickets when we arrived, and money for a cup of coffee to each of us and
That’s it! We were thrown out of Tate.
What we experienced was something totally different
from what the man experienced by running through the National Gallery. Art is
brain and stress for the academic brain-people. It’s about the physical world,
to see without experience. Brain and stress are the academic way of express and
experience art. --- My way is to see and absorb what I see, to get an
experience of what I have seen. I focus emotions while academics focus brain.
An academic can never recognize or get insight to sensitivity;
to understand an artist as me ... we’re living on two different planets.
Yes, they can sell their interpretation of what art
is as affordable art ... which I see as superficial expressions of stressed
brains with fear as the foundation in their lives.
They’ve always met me with snobbish arrogance and,
they’re always right, never wrong. I’m the one who is wrong in their eyes, yes,
brain-people are control freaks and, they take over the culture with their
violent ways of using their brain.
Here is one of my videos; - Art video - To

the losers. Other losers are within health, medicine, food etc. – in their eyes
I’m the idiot and they’re the genius.
Today, you need papers, diplomas, certificate,
evidence, proof ... that you’ve educated through an academic institution to
call yourself an artist. – I’m a self-taught artist and, am pr. definition not
an artist. Those who haven’t gone through an academic institution are not an
artist ... so ... am I an artist or not? I don’t have any papers, diplomas etc.
– Honestly, I don’t care – I’m expressing myself in different forms and ways as
a part of my life, not because I want to be called an artist.
