The Story Behind the Painting: My name is Gustav. I am happy today but also a little bit concerned. The closing was yesterday, final papers signed and sealed by our King today. Now I am the official owner of a little oasis in the desert, with a creek, a few dozen palms end even a few orange trees. Hard work and dedication to my Lord had been rewarded, but I am worried if I am worthy of such a present. My Lord is very kind to me. – Allois & Jorgé

Hunter, 2017

Oil on canvas, 24″ x 18″, framed, contact Loew’s Beach Hotel Santa Monica, Flower & Hewes Gallery

The story  behind the painting:

In the Beginning there was Darkness, then there was Light, and that was Good. But then The Shadows appeared and Shadows followed The Light. Everywhere The Light went, Shadows followed. You think of Shadows as two-dimensional, but they are Not! Shadows have volume, they have weight and they have intent! And their intent is Not Good… We are the Hunters, we hunt Shadows. Our names: Allan and Francisc. If your Light gets soft or starts to flicker, we give you a second chance. (Allois & Jörge)

The story  behind the painting:

 “My name is Christopher, I think of Marcel as my Guardian Angel. I am not alone in my belief; my father also thinks that Marcel is his Guardian angel. We all know this is not true: Marcel watches over our whole family but he guards only the kids, my sister and me. My great-great-grandmother found Marcel under a Christmas tree in our family home, Château de Tiregand. Marcel has been with my family ever since. Marcel watches over me, he helps me to be good during the whole year, but on Christmas Marcel oversees that Santa Claus is good to me. Marcel is very wise and very powerful, I am very proud of him! Marcel makes sure that my good behavior during the year is rewarded. Every year I am thinking very hard about what I want for Christmas, I want so many things but there will only be one present! Marcel never fails me but on Christmas Eve I am always worried if he knows what I really-really want. Many wishes but only one present, it will be so much fun tomorrow to see what my best wish really is! Merry Christmas!!!” (Allois & Jörge)

Dreamcatchers. The hunt goes on! It goes on forever, it started the moment your ancestors learned how to dream, and the chase will never end.

Only the strongest dreams may come true, because only the strongest dreams will be hunted down to be tamed and morphed into your reality. We are your Dreamcatchers. We are professional hunters, and as such we never go after sick, weak, or deformed dreams. If you’ll ever dream something grand and beautiful, we shall be ready! We get our strength from you, so if you want us to hunt down your dream, YOU must be strong and brave and determined. Who we are? Ask your Guardian Angel, he knows us well. (Allois & Jörge)

The Theater of Earth

 

SOLD

Oil on gesso panel, 40 x 30 in, framed, private collection of Gabrielle & Christophe Choo

The Theater of Earth. This is my latest painting from The Floating Kingdom series. Painting was inspired by a fleeting encounter with a wonderful couple. Two creatures of power and fine attributes are enjoying their night out at the theater. They are watching a new channel, a non-stop reality show broadcasted from the Earth. Our couple is mildly interested in this new program, but you can tell that they are not really concerned about its outcome or happy endings for the characters (called Humans). They are happy being next to each other and their love fills the painting with an aura of happiness. (Allois and Jörge)

Christopher and Gabrielle. I am the Princess and I am in love! I have been in love all my life, and it was true and selfless love, it was my Love to myself! My Love came easy to me because I am beautiful, I am inhumanly smart, and my accomplishments are the base for a few urban legends. But my True Love and my greatest accomplishment is my Love to my husband! I do not talk to my fellow humans about my new Love for the same reason I do not discuss my achievements with my pets: they will listen but will never comprehend. Humans are of the different species than me and my Love. We are the aliens on this Earth and I know quite well what happens to my kind when we try to explain ourselves to Humans, or when we fall in love with them. My closest relative, Antoine De Saint-Exupery shared his story of The Little Prince, he also imagined that he is of the same breed as Humans… but then he had to leave. I am not ready to leave the planet of my birth, not yet. Also, my True Love, my husband, still has some duties to perform here. Nothing too important if you ask me, but he is not me, he follows the Orders from the Emperor of The Floating Kingdom to the letter. Men!!!  (Allois & Jörge)

Picnic Collection: Picnic 2

 Oil on gesso panel, 40″ x 30″, contact Allois Studios (allois@allois.com)

The story behind the painting: 

My name is Lars de Montesquieu. You must have heard about my father, Baron de Montesquieu. My mother is still alive and well but she is not quite human. I love to travel. I travel in an old-fashioned way by train, boat or by car and I love to use my talents for slipping into parallel worlds and different realities. I believe that peculiarities of my genetics and upbringing provide me with unique means to finding keys to personal happiness. My twelve-volume treatise “Happiness is Easy” is going into its second printing but it has yet to be translated into Human language. (Allois & Jörge)
