Sliding woods, 2018
The artist´s comment on the artwork: “Every time I start my journey to Estonia, it takes the same route. Because it is so near to Latvia, I always go by bus or car, so the landscape feels very iconic and significant, it resembles what Estonia is for me. With the first meters after crossing the border I am starting to look for differences, but everything looks the same - nature is just like at home, but the feeling is different. The same, but not mine anymore. In my painting is depicted the movement of the viewer as he/she moves, while the nature stands still and the same even if it might look the other way around."
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.
