My practice is based on painting’s extensive traditions. Material enquiry is at the center of my work and I approach painting as a three-dimensional object, rather than an illusion of an image on canvas. History of oils, pigments and wood and their use in painting has been in my focus in recent years. By creating close relationship with materials I also strenghten my relationship with surroundings. Painting has become a method to familiarize myself with this world.
