During a residency in a finnish Smalltown i focussed on transitions from matural to artificial, virtual to real, margins from natural to cultural landscapes. The permanenet, even nighttime, even and difuuse light led to a feeling of virtuality.
The paintings are based on digital collages from photos of finish samlaltowns. The painterly style oscilliates between gesture and controlled painting with digital connotations.
The fictional hometowns seem familiar, but somthing is different, you just can´t point out what.
