the beginning

This is an old one. taken in May 2018. i’ve been working on this one again and again. finally settling on trying something new. a collage. a subtle one but going into more surrealism than i have done in years. it’s been sitting on my computer for months now looking exactly like this. i kept going back but not changing anything in the end. for a long time now i’ve been looking for a certain depth that i want to be able to generate and capture in my work. but i’ve not been able to. i’ve been afraid of putting in the work and effort and time into the process that is necessary to get there as it seems an incredibly difficult task. and it’s one that i’m afraid of committing to because i’m not sure i will be able to achieve it. that’s why i’ve hardly done any new work. scared of failing in going where i want to go without having a clear sense where that even is. but it’s time to try. and in a way this is the first step in this process. one try. one small approach towards a change that i need and that will take me a very long time to accomplish.

this distant place

“For the time being, Dickinson’s here with me, in Iceland. For someone who stayed home she fits naturally into this distant and necessary place. […] Dickinson stayed home to get at the world. But home is an island like this one. And I come to this island to get at the very center of the world.”

  • Roni Horn (When Dickinson shut her eyes - I go to Iceland)


Taken on Liuskasaari, Helsinki at the first sign of spring in Finland with a very talented cellist whose path I crossed by chance early in the year. The island and its rocky surface gave the perfect aesthetics and I fell in love with the location the moment I lay eyes on it.
