ABOUT MY ART

Artist's statement

Authenticity, nature, connection and the North

Roots in Kittilä, home in Rovaniemi, cottage in Riutula, Inari. These places are a strong foundation for everything I do in my art. I look, listen, touch and smell. I focus on all the senses and reflect what I experience through creative processes.

The rhythms and cycles of nature repeat themselves in my works. Seasonal movement, endless changes, organic shapes and the transition of light. I observe the inner and the outer, myself and the world. The world I live in. The dangers of the north, the earth's surfaces, bare bodies of water and delicious flora. Untouched and independent of humans. Through my works, I present my own dependence on this independence. I take refuge in nature like a newborn takes refuge in its mother. I take advantage of it and create something obvious, yet inexplicable.

Usually, I make my art with oil colors and acrylic colors on different painting bases. I also draw, make graphics and sculptures. Harmonious colors, naturalness, northern life, spontaneous and unplanned work and layered surfaces are repeated in my work. I make both realistic and expressive art. Sometimes I combine these art forms with each other.
