Important situations / moments engraved in my memory / corrosive memories / pictorial stories / people and places with which we shared a certain thing / this is something I remember.

I explore significant moments that have stuck in my mind. They include moments filled with love, experiences of stopping, feelings of loneliness, intense moments. I compiled portraits of people with whom I have happened to experience these moments. The encounters may have included sorrow, anxiety, joy, a feeling of freedom, sensuality, empathy, friendship or a feeling of togetherness. Over time the experiences have turned into strong, mysterious memories.
My exhibition consists of mixed media reliefs. The figures cut out from a wood panel have been covered with ceramic mosaic and pieces of wood and painted over with gouache paint, ink and acrylic paint.
