Barnet, sett og hørt

Barnet spør, 

– Hvorfor er det så mange pupper her. 

– Synes du det er mange pupper. 

– Ja. Liker du pupper. 

– Mm, ja. Jeg gjør kanskje det. Men jeg liker føtter og hender også, at noen springer, danser. At vi kan gjøre mye med føttene og hendene våre. Kanskje er puppene her fordi jeg er et pattedyr. Det er fint å være et pattedyr, å bære rundt på maten, at maten finnes i kroppen. Andre steder er det også mat. I myter, fortellinger, drømmer og følelser kan det være små pakker med næring vi kan dele. Noen ganger kjennes det som om alle stjernene på himmelen er digre pupper jeg kan få melk fra. Jeg blir svimmel av alle lysene der oppe. 

Utstillingen åpner lørdag 3. september kl 14, og varer til 25. september.

Galleri Athene ligger 10 minutters gange fra Drammen stasjon, tvers over gaten til Buskerud Kunstsenter, rett ved Drammen bibliotek. Drammen har spisesteder, skogen rett ved og fine stier langs elva. Da jeg var barn fantes det skumle tannleger der som drev med regulering, kanskje de er utryddet, hvem vet?

Velkommen!

Eros

These drypoints are small, about 6 x 8 cm. They are the beginning of a new suite of print, with Eros as the key role.

It must be something about childhood. There are angels everywhere. I think something more is going to happen in this print.  I have to think about it.

The sleep

When I was a kid, I used sometimes to curl myself in our dogs place. Lying there together was warm, kind of safe and soothing. The soft fur, the  smell of animal could change a crying child to a sleepy girl.

Coming home

The elephant is coming home. At last. The girl is welcoming the big animal. The cat and the dog are also greeting the elephant. That is all I know about this picture. Or, maybe I know more. But I have chosen to tell you only this. Maybe you have another story to tell about the elephant?

I really enjoy my diamond drypoint working on the surface of the copper. Diamonds are marvelous tools for drawing on copper and plexiglas. The copper feels like soft butter under my hands. I like this feeling. The lines of the drypoint is almost hairy. Different from the sharp etched line.

These prints are a kind of window back to childhood. Was it an elk in the forest or a bent tree? Is the strange woman dangerous or funny? Are the forest in the night filled with other things than in daytime? The night time is a time for fantasy. But also fear of darkness.  As an artist, I am allowed to play at work. I do it often. Are you able to play at work or other places? Do it. It makes wonders.

 

Angel

Ruth Roland © BONOA floating world. Two old trees. Grass. The small world is floating in the air. A visit from an angel. The copperplate is almost too huge for my printing press, 70 x 80 cm. I love to work with the drypoint, you work directly into the plate with a needle. This is mostly done with a diamond.  This plate is meant for changing. The title «The world is changing» helps me to rembember the change. Next step is to remove something. And add something else. It is like working on a story.
