I am a Helsinki based visual artist currently working in the expanded field of painting. I am usually making more sculptural and installation like works with a conceptual approach. I am interested in everyday materials and I want to create ambiguous objects or metaphorical spaces that suggests or contain potential for something, for example potential for kinetics. My main area of interest is where ordinary and practical intersects with poetic or immaterial. My works addresses transformation, dismantling, reorganization and the borderlines and grey areas in between; when something becomes something else.
