These are some of the small pieces that I've been working on in the last month here at KulttuuriKauppila. I've put them together to photograph and its interesting how it changes them. They've been placed around the studio in different ways whilst in progress so I think this format is the direction they are heading in. What interests me is the nature of how the paint and tar create spaces that suggest huge vistas and the collage constructs another layer of this visual narrative. The decorative motifs seem to disrupt and at other times fix the spaces. I'm working on how to play with these elements as they are all so much a part of what my experience in Finland suggests to me.
