3.8. – 21.8.2011
Galleria Huuto Uudenmaankatu

There is a distorted narrative, a history, in the matter of my paintings. The use of color is the first of a series of choices: stroke, mark, scratch, sign… all of them build a history that will remain in the absence of the subject.

Every gesture leads to a hidden image waiting to be found; to an attempt of comprehending the nature of its presence. Objects stop being hard physical bodies, relieved of weight and density, when they dissolve in the slow light of the pictorial.

My images are in a state of ongoing decay. It is a result of altering the system of traditional representation through the methodical annihilation of the subject matter. It is, in fact, a process of gradually distancing from the customary motif.
