Galleria Huuto Jätkä 1
21 August – 6 September 2015

Opening on the Nights of Art, Thursday 20.8. starting at 6 pm, welcome!

Palm trees, a red hammock and occasional pleasures. Goals and dreams. We dwell on the past and worry about the future. We plan our future, but in reality we cannot predict what will happen. We chase memories, but what do we remember about our fulfilled dreams/moments?

My paintings are a form of memory archeology. I look for the signs and marks that, without being defining, are enough to trigger a memory or a representation of a place. In this exhibition I draw a parallel between a memory and an afterimage, a visual sensation that continues after the stimulus that caused it has ceased.

By exploring what is subjectively real in each moment, we can perhaps experience a moment before the thought of it. I also believe that this is how the best paintings are created. What I also want to say through my works is that what we see is always more than the sum of its parts and not necessarily as stable as it seems.
