Viiskulma 24.6.-12.7.2009

There are drawings and paintings of three artists on display. The artists take a look at the things we want to hide from other people. What and who dare we not face? Do we need someone else in order to live freely, without running away?

I often feel that dreams are more real than daytime life. Nightmares remain in the subconscious and appear as flashbacks. Old dreams, too, come back to my mind every now and then. In addition to dreams, I’m inspired by stories, and I wonder what true reality is like.

I recently emptied some boxes in an attempt to find out what I have. I piled things on a big table wondering what I need all the things for. I noticed that I’m unable to organize things; yet I know where they are. Life consists of things that survive in stories or backyards, homes, piles, and places of storage. I wondered whether there can be two piles, if one is not enough. When I’m drawing, where is everybody else?

Simplicity and repetition are present in all of my works. My works are an expedition into the ordinary; wrinkles and scratches don’t matter. I’ve never used the mangle.

In the countryside, I always discover something new, something I haven’t noticed before. It can be harder to find new things in the cityscape, as everything is strictly defined and measured. I dream of a world where the human being is a part of the nature and not artificially above it. Reality cannot be changed, but my imagination allows me to explore that strange and idealistic world. Along with me on my expedition I take old photographs, a book of fables, and mythology.
