Summer drains through fingers (green), 2020
Oil, acrylic and oil pastel on canvas, attached on aluminium composite
The work is one of the 3-piece series I presented in Kuvan Kevät exhibition. “
My starting point for these works was to make figurative paintings where a pattern wipes the whole surface and continues in the wall. I wanted to paint a certain filtered light phenomenon and combine this with the fence pattern. This became very interesting and fruitful platform to try different things in the painting surface. With the installation I tried to create an illusion of these paintings being attached into the fence (or net) I painted on the wall.”
