Title: Piippu (2014)
This is a limited edition (1/10) signed A3 giclee print of the original, which is printed on heavyweight Hahnemuhle Photorag paper.
Kindly note the print is unframed. It would look the best with a simple white wooden frame and a slightly floated mount.
About the work:
My work is about the relationship between time and memories, and the way time changes our perception of the past. My main subjects are my family members and friends.
Life as we know it is as thin as ice. The beauty of life is tightly linked to the fragility of our existence and the disappearing nature of things. Fear of death has also got a strong presence in my work. We take photographs to preserve time - an image is like a certificate of our presence.
By painting on my photographs I want to highlight our unconscious tendency to erase, alter and change our memories.
I'm obsessed with manipulating my photographs by hand, and adding different textures on them. I want to question the reproducible nature of the medium, and turn photographs into unique pieces of art.
Symbolic, silent language is very important when looking at my works - I want to use my subjects as visual metaphors and as aids for storytelling.
