My exhibition, Lentoreittejä (“Flight Paths”), consists of oil paintings that can be seen as individual works or larger entities. Together they form a big city; alone, an individual apartment or a state of mind. In the city there are routes the masses of people use. The routes in my works are emblematic, and include tree roots, power cables, and roller coasters.

The roaming of the masses is sometimes hindered by stops, such as poles, tree stumps, or power cuts. The general picture turns into the observations, internal mind, and images of an individual; such as flying in a dream. In turn, the images merge with the shared memory and imagery of the mankind.

For me, the narrative aspect of my works is a development story from childhood to maturity, to losing individuality, and to searching for and finding it again. The city is full of single stories, paths, and routes. There are several ways of moving and proceeding, stop by stop.
