In my paintings I seek to visualize this absolute moment of truth and beauty through abstract representations of philosophy of physics, metaphysics or astronomy. In my media-art I utilize interaction as one of the main components of my works. The audience-participants interaction with the work is important (for example in works utilizing gesture-based sensoring or works that consists of parts of something audience has designed themselves). My goal is to create aesthetic experiences, which each member of the audience can interpret in her or his own way.
My working is based strongly on the meditative methods of art making, and my art is influenced by my long-term art teachers Matti Kurki and Nagashila. I’m also inspired and consider as my artistic role models Agnes Martin, Hilma af Klint, Wolfgang Leib, Richard Long, Bill Viola, Olafur Eliasson, James Turrell, just to mention a few.
