NOBA Nordic Baltic contemporary art platform

Transformable and non-transformable, assimilable and non-assimilable, adaptive and non-adaptable, variable and non-variable ...

Nothing arises or disappears in human life, only changes from one state to another. But at the same time, there is always something that remains unchanged. How to recognize the unchanging in the midst of change, rely on one and come to terms with the other?

I have always been interested in this eternal question and led to the creation of these eight paintings. The source of the paintings is the observations of the experienced people who have lived and are living among us, from which I chose the most inspiriring

I ask myself: could my life as a whole really be something different in ten years’ time than it is now?

In theory, everything seems concrete and promisingly clear. However, the actual journey is slow, difficult, cloudy and full of setbacks. In order to stay on target, it is empowered to know that it is through difficulties that people begin to think about important things. In this way, we can learn enormously much more than we think we can. In a series of transformations, we often find it surprising that we have to commit ourselves over and over again to reach our goal.

These paintings are intended as a visual aid to understand and feel the deeper meaning of words – to connect with oneself.
