The Arms of the Night

Minja Karoliina Laakso
The Arms of the Night
23 May–16 June 2024

The darkness of night falls and spreads its veil
Under the cover of darkness, relying on it, spirits awaken
A new world opens up
I feel the tail splashing against the rocks
The tail moves gently
Trees sigh in the glow of the crystal ball
The moon grows and shrinks
In the arms of the night

I paint something unknown and make it visible. Worlds to dive into and get lost in. Stories and secrets. Hidden places and dreams.
