Girl and Python — Some Stories Squared

I am usually not this literal, but yup, this is a Python pic. For the past 54 days, one to fifteen hours of my day each day have been dedicated to studying Python and things connected to Python. It’s not my first programming language. I’ve done some PHP and some JavaScript. And I use PHP in my daily work. But Python is special. It’s a language that feels right. The whole thing …

Ghost in the Shell (Safe Space-3) — Some Stories Squared

I am back in St. Pete. The first week I got back J. was away in London, and I was suddenly all alone in an all empty apartment. It was the first time I was alone since grandpa’s death. When grandpa died, I stayed in Petrozavodsk with my mom for a bit. And that whole month that I was in Petro, when we were taking care of grandpa, the days he was …

Self portrait with dog, digital mixed media painting by Fox Larsson

With Dog — Digital Mixed Media Painting

All of that week grandpa was much worse. So I guess I just wasn’t into quirky pics any more. Not into crocodiles, not into confused naked men hugging crocodiles, not into magical birds. It’s hard to say what I felt that week. What I was mostly thinking about was this: how on earth would I explain to mom that I am staying. That there’s no way I will leave when grandpa is …

Digital painting/drawing of man, fish and bird in hand by Fox Larsson

Up and Down — Digital Mixed Media Painting

I draw fish all the time. I’m not sure when it started. Maybe it was after watching the Arizona Dream where the fish glides through the air, and after listening to “This is a Film” and “In the Death Car” a crazy number of times. I had that on repeat forever. This is a film about a man and a fish.This is a film about a dramatic relationship between a man and …

Man, Croc, and Other Objects — Digital Mixed Media Painting

A week ago I moved back to Petrozavodsk. My grandpa is unwell, and I’m helping my mom take cure of him for the time being. I am not sure how long I’ll be staying here, but at least until we figure out a sustainable way of caring for him. We are currently in the process of trying to find the right combination of medications to ease his anxiety, agitation and hallucinations. It’s …

Teapot Sculpture by Fox Larsson in Wire and Paper-Mache

The Teapot — Sculpture in Wire and Papier-mâché

(scroll down for story) I like kettles and teapots. From old to the very newest cyberspace ones, ceramic, enamel, cast iron, glow in the dark pumped full of electronics and super smart ones. Maybe it’s just the idea of this object the sole purpose of which is bringing warmth and heating water. I drink a lot of tea. Mostly black. Whenever I’m working, there’s always a cup beside me. When I wake …

Fox Larsson Rabbit on Swing Sculpture in Wire and Paper-Mache

Quiet Rabbit (Rabbit on a Swing) — Sculpture in Wire, Rope and Papier-mâché

(scroll down for story) I first discovered steel tie wire as a medium in the winter of 2014. That’s when the rabbit’s body with his solitary pensive look was born. I liked him a lot immediately, but he was lonely and contextless, without a real place in life. He spent some time on my desk and bookshelf, but then hid into one of my bureau drawers and slept there for two whole …
