About "Moon Wall Flowers Snake"

Here we see that the snake entwined in a vase of flowers. A very ordinary 'domestic' situation. The contrast between the snake and the vase of flowers should disturb the viewer. Yet the beauty attracts. The white flowers all have black centres. The weight of the snake is around the thickest of the stems: the 'protea-like' flower. The yellow wall contrasts with the dark and disturbing skyscape. The moon is full and potent. There are no markings on the snake to keep the image clean and simple. The vase of flowers for me is a particularly potent apartheid image: the flowers/plants all have a shortened life span - they have been removed from their natural environment and although 'blooming beautifully' they are tainted with an inner decay.
The snake therefore is displaying its mission - to bring to consciousness that which cannot (or will not) be 'seen' - the disharmony being created by the aparthied state.

About Helge Olle

Helge Olle Janssen

Photographer: Gerald Botha of Stella Nova Studios, Kloof, KZN 2016

Costume design and construction, make-up, concept: Helge Janssen.

My art is formed through a combination of myth, psyche, archetype and innovation drawn from life's many many influences...and has even amazed me with its portent...drawn from a deeply intuitive cognitive consciousness. We have so much more information as our source of inspiration amid a myriad of vying energies.

There was a time 1995 when I approached every single gallery in Gauteng searching for an exhibition space. All of them had a two year plus waiting list. But it was not until I approached a Gallery in the vicinity of the Market Square when the curator took out a book from New York and said to me: look at this....this is the type of art that will get you an exhibition.

With the current madness and orchestrated insanity busy bombing our minds daily, with full intention to DISORIENTATE, OBFUSCATE and DEMORALISE our lives, we have to stand strong and focused.

It is more important than ever that these moronic forces that are hell bent on subjugating the world to its morass of dubious and despicable control mechanisms by robbing us of our sovereignty are defeated. It is a GIVEN that their plans are so DELUDED that they will never succeed. The mere fact that they even THINK that their plan will succeed is alarming enough. It has FAILURE built into it. What it boils down to is that they are hence trying to take as many people as they can with them. It is THEIR end game. It is THEIR fear. It is THEIR stupidity.

And of course being shadow banned as an artist is shameful. But the more I am ignored, hidden, the more powerful my work becomes. It is a given. Thank you in advance.
