Paintings
Galleria Huuto Uudenmaankatu
31.10.–11.11.2007

From the plastic chemical lightness of a balloonpalmtree to the end of the world atmosphere of a nuclear explosion. From the reasonable to the extreme. Found photographs from the internet transform through an expressive painting process to mental landscapes of party atmosphere.

Do I pay respect to the found photograph and the things I found intresting in it. Or do I take the painting to whole new atmospheres through giving the painting process the power of taking me where it leads. Following only the spots and the marks the paint makes when painting? Reasonable and the extreme.

In hanging the works I am interested in the possibility of combining the different paintings and their different themes together. I like the idea of making two different worlds collide by hanging different works so that they will start communicating with each other. The theme I am aiming to with this show lies in between all the paintings in the exhibitions. The whole of the exhibition is more than what any of the individual paintings are alone.
