IT’S ONLY GOLD

"There's a lady who's sure, all that glitters is gold" Robert Plant in Stairway to Heaven


PINTURA ORO WHY GOLD? I don’t use real gold in my Works. Just spray paint, acrylics, acid, pigments and various kind of fake gold paints. Gold may symbolize power, strength, wealth, warmth, happiness, love, hope, optimism, intelligence, justice, balance, perfection, summer, harvest and the sun.


Landscape Patina and acrylics to plywood about 25X33 cm on 50x50x5 cm box


From serie of Bridges 2012 Patina and acrylics 99x88 cm on canvas


WHY RUST? Rusty feeling in my works is simply oxidized metal, and yet the endless variety of textures and colors can be found. Rusty objects captures our imagination-gold ones represent some kind of tasteless luxury. Rust can be beautiful when taken out of it's destructive context and gold can be clichĂŠ.


MATERIAL WORLD When I meet my material I wait until I hear them talking to me. They just want to become pieces of Art in my hands.

HORSES: MADE IN CHINA

Equestrian statue is something absurd: horse is no more war-machine. My horses don’t have riders. In classical Feng Shui applications, the Horse brings the energy of success, fame, freedom and speed but why mine are coated with rust


DREAMS ARE HORSES Wild horses, couldn't drag me away Wild wild horses we'll ride them someday Wild horses, couldn't drag me away Wild wild horses we'll ride them someday Rolling Stones Wild Horses Songwriters: WILLIAMS, JOHN T.

NEXT SOLO EXHIBITION IN TURKU 2013

Galleria Berner info in Finnish: Yhtenä kokonaisuutena kullan, pronssin ja ruosteen väriset maalaukseni eivät ole olleet vielä esillä vaikka jotakin näistä on nähty ryhmänäyttelyissä viime vuosina. Monissa töissäni käytän myös kolmiulotteisia elementtejä elävöittämään maalauspintaa sekä rakennan maalauksien yhteyteen installaatioita. Töissäni kokeilen rautakloridin, oksidien, petsin, kultauksen ja muovimateriaalien yhdistelemistä. Hapotan, patinoin ja poltan taulujani kiinnostavien pintarakenteiden aikaansaamiseksi. Galleria Berner sijaitsee Vanhan Raatihuoneen 1. kerroksessa. Esillä on ajankohtaista eri alojen kuvataidetta. Avoinna ti–pe klo 12–19 ja la–su klo 11– 17. Vapaa pääsy.
