How long should we accept rape and sexual abuse? The #Metoo campaign has helped a lot to put the focus on this, but it's still a long, long way to go: The facts remain (here based upon official statistics from Norway and the UK). It's only one out of ten of those being raped who actually goes to the police and report this crime. Yes, then we are down to ten percent. Out of those who actually report a rape, only about one out of ten reported rapist who gets convicted. Do the math: This making rape the crime a criminal person is almost sure not to be convicted of. The question should be: how long will we accept this lottery of the abused? To put this painting in a historical context, I based the setup upon a painting by the Norwegian painter and writer Christian Krohg who in 1886 wrote the novel Albertine. The day after the publication of the novel, the book was confiscated by the police. In 1888 the Supreme Court of Norway upheld the confiscation of the book that told the story of the girl Albertine who was raped and from that became a prostitute. In 1887 Krogh finished the painting Albertine at the Police Doctor's Waiting Room, a painting now at the National Gallery in Oslo. BUT, this is 2018 - and rape is still the 'safest' crime criminals can get away with? Is this what we call a civilised society? In front of the door on this painting, I painted a police, a judge and a politician - the same three on the blackboard on the wall. The rest are the abused, the victims of rape. It's so many that's needed for one rapist to be convicted. Yes, it's so many people that I had to use the ancient technique of painting more persons behind each person. My question is then: #Howlong will it take before these 2 will be #Metoo?

From international artprojects, one-man shows, group exhibitions and as a curator for a artist led gallery - I moved away from the western art scene. Lived in a country with five thousand years of art history, and with contemporary egyptian artists for nearly fourteen years. Today my art is less an reaction, and more an interaction. *********MY_ART_STYLe**************** My first exhibitions was very much part "the New Wild", an art expression today often defined as neo-expressionism. Still, I was part of performance art projects, and an art critic once said that I "use figuartion as an excuse to paint abstract" - and yes, that's pretty true as well. *********DEVELOPING_MY_ARt******** Apart from working in the wave of "Heftiges Maleri", performance as curating, I have never used photo in my artworks, but included photographers in my art projects. My take on photography has been from documenting polaroid photos with their frames on canvas, to the painted serial "unsuccessful family photos". After this serial I did a number of paintings (on canvas) where one of the main focus was to cut a motive so much that the viewer had to imagine what was outside the frame. *********POST_ANALOG_ARt************ Most of my time the last ten years had been to develop and personalise an "post analog" art expression. "Post analog" is normally what's called digital painting and drawing, and it's first of all a tool. Still those who have been working in oil on canvas, have to learn a new way to work to get the best out of acrylic paintings (- and vice versa). It's no difference with digital art, as one can't take the experience of analog painting (as painting on canvas) directly over to post analog media. I still have the same way I express myself through art, but it took a many, many years before I could say that I was able to create art as freely in a post analog media as I did in my studio on canvas. *********DIGISEED_ARt*************** After having found the new post analog tools I had to create a new way to make sure the buyer of post analog art could become the owner of the digital file, and not only what is made from this file. This is what I call DigiSeed, and this information can be found here: http://digiseed.org
