In a strange place
I paint large scale canvases, and smaller paintings on wood panels and paper. My paintings can often be looked as intuitive maps. I combine known symbols and invented marks and look for new ways of knowing and using the paint. I look into the history of the modern knowledge system for creating my own ontological suggestions of an experience of being inside the world, not outside it.
I indulge in the materiality of paint, the layered meanings, and the immediacy, that the paint and the color create.
My main medium is painting, but I occasionally work with installation, video and printmaking projects.
My studio in Helsinki is normally open for visits. I am currently in Santa Cruz, California for the spring.
