Liisi Eelmaa comments on her painting : “The paint on the desk is still a vague mass of colourant, pigment, binder and filler soon to be transformed into an image. I am intrigued by the moment the transformation is happening. Paint may still seem arbitrary without having the status of an image; however, what already exists is the decision and attempt to do something with it. The beginning of any painting is abstract if looking at the first patch of colour. My purpose is emphasizing the endeavour to make something out of a paint blotch that in itself is abstract – it can be viewed as abstract art. This, in turn, provides a chance to enter a free figural space where the viewer as an active receiver equalizes the artist as an image-maker – both of them thus contributing while using their imagination. Since the times of cave paintings people have depicted better life – better than the one at hand. Creating an image was supposed to fulfill a wish. While observing the timeline between the cave era and today's world, we can see imagination coming to life to the fullest. Everything that we have now has been gained thanks to the imagination of our ancestors. What will come in the future is created right now.”
