Galleria Huuto Jätkäsaari, Jätkä 1
30 May –14 June 2015

I wanted to go outside and see nature, feel the open space and the movement in everything, in the wind and in the earth. and draw myself as part of it all.

I wanted to bring the spaciousness and air of the outside to my studio and work feeling the freshness of wandering, observing and sketching around the painting.

I think about touching the world and about the silences, spaces and dreams that are in us. I think about color, its light, touch and feel of vividness. I work in an atmosphere accompanied by a memory of being in nature and closeness to its material character, approaching the animate and inanimate shapes in nature as creatures. I think about the profound sensitivity of looking, the experience of something sacred as well as nature as a home.

I wish to thank the Kone Foundation for a working period at the Saari Residence in 2013 and the Finnish Bioart Society (Ars Bioarctica Initiative) for a possibility to work in Kilpisjärvi 2013.
