The Sound of Rain, 2018
Acrylic on canvas
The artist´s comment on the artwork: “’The Sound of Rain’ depicts a rainy day in Estonia. Research shows that 73% of the Estonian population has less vitamin D than required. I wonder why? The inspiration came from living between Riga and Tallinn during the last few years and looking through the windows in rain and how they depict different dimensions. One dimension, where the viewer is dry and safe, is the room. Another is the window surface with raindrops, transforming the rays of light. At the same time, another dimension comes into existence – a phone call from a company offering to buy vitamin D. Is it getting lighter outside the window?”
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.
