"Läsnä / Present"
⌀ 51 cm, Akryylimaalaus kankaalle 2019
"Present" is about the moment, something that seems so incredibly simple and self explanatory but seems to bring difficulty to many. I have captured and trapped a symbol known to many of beauty, violated its freedom, and deformed it with the watchful eye of dissection. Despite all of these measures "Present" is in the moment, not concentrating on the surroundings nor being consumed by fear. It is simply being.
"In Memoriam" triptyykki sarja
⌀ 30cm, Akryylimaalaus kankaalle, 2019
This series is based on the idea of animal wellbeing, mainly it is focused on the trending market of what we consume. This painting is for the passing of my goldfish who had struggled with illness since a young age. I painted him as he was an inspiration to me, I use water as a theme in my paintings and I would watch him for hours swimming and moving around with the help of his room mate who was much stronger and larger than him. I would see him feeling unwell and see the bigger fish protecting him and helping him from sinking, keeping his spirits high. Everything has a spirit, a personality, it is whether we choose to take the time to get to see it or not. To enrich our lives is to observe, discuss, learn about the things, people, ideas around us.
