I´m a visual artist living in Helsinki, Finland, working mainly with painting and drawing, sculpture, light and video. My practice has been in a positive change in the last years. Light has been a unifying factor as a medium, theme and a metaphor in my work that has otherwise spread to different media and experiments.
In light I´m interested in the affectivity of it, how light seems to attract us humans in an instinctual way. For me it appears as a fascination towards objects of light, they seem to me in some way alive. Maybe light attracts us because we are animals of day light and sun, at least until the invention of the light bulb we were. We know subconsciously that light represents life. And maybe that´s why there´s this uncanny aspect in artificial light – it mimics the sun but lacks the life.
