contemplation, 2017


Oil on canvas

The artist´s comment on the artwork:
“White, Intimate, Sacramental, Meditative, silence, stillness , peace, rest – those words echoe to to me when thinking about Estonia. After I finished this work, somebody said to me that in Edinburgh, in Santa Maria Chapel there is a painting at an altar like this. I was nicely surprised. I like draperies and silence. White is purified. It really resembles the Lord’s sacrifice.”


The artwork is participating in MyEstonia? competition
'My Estonia?' calls for reflections on Estonia through the eyes of foreigners. For some participants, Estonia might be a chapter of their lives, for others it may evoke more arbitrary associations or Malevich “Black Square” type of interpretations - all in all, the competition looks for a wide array of playful approaches.

A selection of works from the competition participated in  ArtVilnius ´18 on 7-9 June 2018.
Online voting to identify the winner of the Public Choice Award took place at art platform from 28 June until 12 July. See all participating artworks and the results of the competition HERE!
