Refraction, 2018


Canvas, acryl, concrete

The artist´s comment on the artwork:

“I came to Estonia because my desire was to live on a North shore and i didn’t regret it. Because of its geographical location, light on the Estonian coasts is different, clouds move faster and closer to the Earth’s surface. Other colors can be seen in the sky and at sea, changing between meat, violet, ultramarine and mars black. The city and nature are in balance and architecture is interesting and diverse. The sunshine illuminates the moon differently during the dayparts. The calm bay shows the Scandinavian purity, but the weather is surprising and doesn’t let the senses to stay too calm.”
