b. 1981, Helsinki
a visual artist
My artworks are installations, because using space to greate a comprehensive experience, also one for many senses interests me. The thought of the visual artist has to be seen in the material, and that makes the technique of the art work a part of the content. Each work requires its own method of working. The question how to depict repeats often in my works. The materials used link the art pieces to our daily world. I have often combined drawing and three-dimensionality: the mark of the hand, wich implies to presens and the objects. A succesful art work tempts people inside, indulce to believe in the scene I have created. And the viewer can maybe return to the past moment, wich, from all the fleeting moments, has for some reason started puzzling my mind. In my art I deal with the relationship between human and the nature. In the moment of environmental anxiety I work on with this theme from the point of view of an individual, not from the point of view of the political decisions. I depict groups of animals, small communities, wich are linked to each other and also to the people. This world lives regardless of me looking it and often hidden from my eyes. In three of my works I have depicted birds, wich are in the same time social and unreachable from the man. The art piece is a place for encountering. I also illustrate the passing of time in the nature, wich is not measured by a clock and where the time spans, compared to a human life, are wild. I have also depicted the surrounding mass-produced architecture, such as streetlight, staircase and piers and the traces of time in them. Also the idea of weightlessness, floating and being in a borderline, like on the water level or between floor levels repeats in my works. The task of an artist is to pick things and phenumenas from our world and bring them visible to be experienced and considered. Added to this, I am a member of an artists` group Piirakkakerho, which organizes community art events.
