As a child, when I looked at a moss-covered stone wall full of holes and complex structures, I saw a breathtaking multi-layered city of tiny creatures, their homes and mines, gardens and paths, endless possibilities.

The Goblin Geology, Troll Romance exhibition features made-up places and their inhabitants. The works are based on the exciting feeling that there is something very small in a large and complex environment. Imagination influenced by video games produces images of fantastic worlds whose stagnant warmth invites you to join an adventure in front of something remotely familiar, yet unknown.
The places depicted in the paintings can be simultaneously seen from many different perspectives, revealing more than just one side of them. The two- and three-dimensional spaces meet instinctively, forming an incomplete thought of each place with room to grow and wander.

Frans Nybacka (b. 1993, Kangasala) is a multi-disciplinary artist who lives and works in Helsinki. He has studied at the Aalto University Department of Art and, in addition to visual arts, he has made a name for himself by making music videos and tattoos. His works have been on display at several group exhibitions, ranging from traditional galleries to artist-run forest and home exhibitions. Nybacka’s second solo exhibition focuses on the artist’s greatest passion – painting.
