Mission Statement.

The quest for authenticity by removing the mask of cleverness,
recalling an earlier, less complex time, the visual artist has returned
to become a contemporary, distilled and layered signifier of what
makes an ‘authentic man’.
Admitting where I am, the truth is, I’m doing, in a daily way,
what I feel I am meant to do in life; those things which, with their
very doing, release inside of me a fountain with " Overflow " energy
into which I can pour hours as if they were moments. I’m consistently
doing those things that bring out the best in me.

Such passions are different for all of us, and I hope you know
what yours are. For me, they are evangelism, writing and making
visual art. They’re the same topics for which I created this Live
Journal, ten years ago, as a amateur; [ amare, Latin, to love ]
who takes risks on paper/canvas, far from being second to the
professional I am at the forefront of experimentation. Allowing
myself censored and uncensored expression. Engaging the
mind, will and emotion. Meeting of conscious [ censored ]
and unconscious [ uncensored ] spiritual and material, public
and private. Don't tell anyone ! ... ;-]

Raw and redolent Nullarbor Nymph.



Title: Nullarbor Nymph humpy.
Painter: Jesper Andersen.
Medium: Oil on cardboard.
N.F.S. ©

The myth of the Nullarbor Nymph was born in December of 1971, and has become outback folklore. A young woman was photographed, wearing some strategically placed animal skins, running along the Nullarbor Plain. The female beauty lived in the desert with the kangaroos. National and world wide media organisations flocked to the tiny town of Eucla just over the Western Australian border. Eucla is so small that if you blink on your way through, you’d miss it. A motel, a petrol bowsers, one phone box, and the population of eight. There where even suggestions that she might be an itinerant Adelaidian who had disappeared from the motel the year before, leaving all her belongings behind. Out there, in the middle of nowhere, it seemed possible, even likely. The locals were taking tourists out into the scrub and surrounding bushland, showing them imprints of a woman's feet in the sand, and a place where it was believed the Nullarbor Nymph had her humpy.
In other words, the patterns are directly perceived as somehow meaningful and thereby offer themselves as salient motifs for use in rituals.

Brave art.



Title: Braveart.
Painter: Jesper Andersen.
Medium: Oil on carboard.

I was browsing an art magazine - Fine Art of Today's West. When I saw an advertisement for an exhibition at “ Red Cloud Indian School “ by the American Sioux Lakota artist, Braveheart. After contacting him via E-mail, I painted the above autobiographical oil painting titled " Braveart " as a homage to Braveheart.
The motif in the painting shows a “ blue hand, blue meaning heavenly origin; the Lord from heaven, a white finger print; white meaning light, righteousness, purity, and three Sioux Indian words, floating on oval cells, suggesting movement of the Internet and different tribes of post-modern people meeting one another in cyber space. I understand the two Sioux words , " Lakota and Ohitika ". Lakota; meaning friend, and Ohitika; meaning brave.

My art consists of works produced by myself, who for various reasons I have not been culturally indoctrinated or socially conditioned. They are all kinds of art works on the fringes of society. I am working outside fine art "system" (schools, galleries, museums). These pictures have been produced, from the depths of my own personalty and for myself, and exhibited only on this Internet blog site. Works of outstanding originality in concept, subject and techniques, creativity is untidy and unnerving. They are works which owe nothing to tradition or fashion. They form a truly singular reality of their own.

Painting and creating is not a musty old-fashioned activity, it's alive. To express yourself well in this age get to know your substance and how it can hold meaning. Science and technology has given us reason and explanations but still art holds unanswered and unnameable experiences. " In monumental oil paintings, the self is an expressive vehicle, while roughly hewn and boldly painted." - Gagosian Athens
"Visual art is a great thing. It draws the attention of people. That's what people's work does. It preaches for them after they're gone. Yes... it certainly does." – Howard Finster
If we consider the several components manifested in this work of art, foremost is the painter myself. There is also my particular social and cultural environment. But equally the act of creating in the use of my intuitive faculties, non-essential elements where distilled or eliminated. To appreciate fully this auspicious work of art, one must use the same sense of intuition as I used, together with your conscious knowledge of my other works of art on this "livejournal," and other blogs in order to judge, the quality of my abstract realism.
This painting was painted from memory. I am expressing myself in a cursive, gutsy way, but not overtly 'thick,' but full of Spiritual Overflow presence.

Solitude of the Ark.

In fiction, when one person reads the mind of another, it is often described as being able to hear this internal monologue as if it were said out loud.
Internal monologue, also known as inner voice, internal speech, or stream of consciousness is thinking in words. It also refers to the semi-constant internal monologue one has with oneself at a conscious or semi-conscious level.

" ...I will extend peace to her like a river, and the wealth of nations like a flooding stream; you will nurse and be carried on her arm and dandled on her knees."



Title: Solitude [ Terroir ] of the Ark
Painter: Jesper Andersen.
Medium: Oil on cardboard.
N.F.S. ©

Solitude as in " terroir " can be very loosely translated as "a sense of place," which is embodied in certain characteristic qualities, the sum of the effects that the local environment has had on the production of the art. At its core is the assumption that the land from which the art is inspired, imparts a unique quality that is specific. The amount of influence and the scope that falls under the description of terroir has been a controversial topic in visual art.

You can almost smell the brooding odours of existential angst.
And their metaphors are as ham-fisted as the application of pigment.
Is my brand so strong that you can't resist looking - even at works on
which you know no love will be lost? Testing the parameters of
expectation and taste.

The several components manifested in " Winter landscape blanket” there is also the particular social and cultural environment, the influence of my sayings sink down into your ears, fused by the intuitive processes. I used a quantity of Titanium White paint, painted spontaneous, rough handling of patched white oil paint, suggesting direct observation, over a dark green older landscape underneath, [this is called - Pentimento]. To create spatial ambiguity shape, against the space while portraying the irregularities in nature. You can almost smell the brooding odors of existential angst. And their metaphors are as ham-fisted as the application of pigment & hues.
Is my brand so strong that you can't resist looking - even at works on
which you know no love will be lost? Testing the parameters of
expectation and taste. Its both a post-modern landscape, prophetic and a tablet, a flat slab. Space is a presence not just interplay, of distance in pictorial space.

Protective powers of the colour red against evil influence were common belief. Objects, animals and trees were covered in red paint, warriors painted their axes and spear-catapults red to endow the weapons with magic powers. Some of the Australian aborigines abide by this custom up to the present times. Roman gladiators drank blood of their dying adversaries to take over their strength. In other cultures, the newly born were bathed in blood of particularly strong and good looking animals. Wearing a red ruby was supposed to bring about invincibility. Red bed-clothes were customary in Germany up to the Middle Ages as protection against the "red illnesses", such as fever, rashes or even miscarriages (famous example is the painting Arnolfini Wedding by Jan Van Eyck, dated 1434). Your Bible has a crimson core. It begins with God Himself, shedding the blood of the first sacrificial lamb to cover Adam's sin, and ends with a multi-national chorus singing, "You . . . have redeemed us to God by Your blood out of ,every. . . nation" (Rev.5:9). The blood will always offend those with sins to hide, a rebellious will to protect, or a Gospel that offers salvation through good works or social evolution. The blood not only saves the repentant, it condemns the defiant, for "And almost all things are by the law purged with blood; and without the shedding of blood there is no remission."
"Since Scripture imparts salvation, effective evangelism depends on the faithful proclamation of the Word. God will prepare the soil and bring forth the fruit. We must be faithful to plant the seed." - John MacArthur
In The Holy Communion, the sym­bols of bread and wine speak to us of Jesus' body and blood. Bread and wine are physi­cally real and almost universally recogniz­able as the archetypal food and drink. And while they are like Jesus' body and blood (in color, in texture, in form-solid and fluid) they are also unlike it. For bread and wine are common but Christ's body and blood are unique, broken and poured out "once for all." It is our imagination that transfers the stark symbols of body/blood to another level, on which we perceive their mean­ing-Jesus himself, broken and made available for our spiritual life and nourishment.

The red under paint give the painting depth. With red underlying large areas of the two dimensional painted surface, like a lifeblood. Complemented by the geometry of the painting.

'The present post-modern era is vastly removed from times when God was commonly at the core of human thinking about life, made manifest through architecture, art, music, and literature, and seriously considered in philosophical thought. But a fundamental change has occurred. So much of society, impressed with its achievement, has gradually crowded God out of a central place in thought and values. Still, the reality is that human nature hungers for God, and thereby many people cultivate private pursuits for Him on their own terms, inevitably becoming confused about spiritual reality.' - " New Spirit Filled Life Bible NKJVersion " 2002 Thomas Nelson, Inc. page...1884 " Personal Evangelism by Brent Price."

The Danish Community in Australia.
Arrival;
Some of the earliest accounts of Danish contact with Australia date from the mid-1600s when Peter Petersen, First Mate on Abel Tasman vessel the Zeehan , set foot in Van Diemens Land, modern-day Tasmania .
Another early visitor was Johannes Bremer , second –in-command on the
Geelvinck , which arrived in West Australia to explore the Swan River in
1696.
The first Danish ship to sail into Australian waters is believed to be the frigate, The Fredensborg Slot in 1718.
Settlement;
The disbanding of the Danish army in Schleswig - Holstein after the war in 1849/51 led to a comparatively large emigration of young Danes to the
Victorian gold fields. They settled in Bendigo, Castlemaine and Ballarat.
The last decades of the nineteenth century saw significant growth in the
Danish population in Australia.

Jesper:
The mineral jasper is derived from this name.
Jasper is a male's given name. The name means "spotted or speckled stone" and is derived from Greek iaspis, (feminine noun) It is a variation of the Persian Kaspar. According to the Biblical tradition Casper ( from the Persian "Gaspar" meaning 'treasurer or treasure bringer' ) is the name of one of the “ Three Kings “, who presented Christ gifts. Casper gave frankincense. The name Gaspar or Caspar, along with the names of the other two legendary magi, appeared for the first time in two medieval Latin texts and dates from the 9th century AD. The spell containing the name of Jaspar is a French and English transcription of the Latin word Caspar. Its Biblical reference led to its adoption as an English name in the 17th Century. There are numerous modern variations such as Γάσπαρ or Κάσπαρ (Greek), Gaspare (Italian), Kaspar (German), Jasper or Casper (English), Jesper (Scandinavian languages), Kacper (Polish), Gáspár (Hungarian), Kasparov (Russian) etc.
