Artist Comments

“The universe and all within it, inanimate or as life forms, is implacably subject to the laws of physics, namely the time continuum and the resulting cycle of life which can be measured in millenniums or nanoseconds. Nothing is permanent, matter and energy are in constant flux, our sun is half empty and in a short 5 billion years our solar system will recycle into something new.

The cycle of life is the one crucial pondering for humans, classified as “mortals” relative to the infinite lives and transmutations of the gods and goddesses necessary to make sense of the terrible affliction of life and death. Religion, philosophy, lysergic acid diethylamide, mystics, stoic foretellers, and cryogenic preservation have all provided a myriad of answers with varying degrees of surprising and at times unsavory methods. The paramount question remains and it may well be that it is too much of a question to ask.

The goddess is the perfect emissary to the gods who have all the answers, and as the mother goddess with aptitudes including birth, fertility, the cycle of seasons, sexuality, water and solid connections as the mother of many gods. Perhaps, when a pandemic rages on earth, as they have in times past we can find consolation in the enduring goddess who reminds us of the beauty of birth, and the resurrection that follows death. She has many names, mother goddess seems most appropriate.”


There is something about creating a timeless art piece that feels like a celebration. It`s like a fine wine. There is a certain quality, artistry, passion, and workmanship, that goes into its creation. – Torleif Lie


Creation Process

“Birth, Death and Resurrection” is an actual photograph and what the camera recorded at the time of capture. It is not created on a computer. The distorted abstract reflection of the subject matter is created by ripples in the water surface, distorting the mirror effect seen underwater. The image is rotated 180 degrees.
