Dark Light


Artificial light provides the backdrop for the works on display here, set in my neighbourhood near the centre of Helsinki.
I move through times of obscurity amid the reflections, flickers and gleam of urban life, an ancient compass inside me. What we know has faded from view and time ticks away at many different speeds. It is as if our own history had passed us by and we had only now begun to wake up to our longing for the depth and comfort of a darkness long lost.
In the Studio, on the tablet screen, you can see a series of sketches called Afterimages from last summer. Originally, I only meant to see
what it was like to draw on a tablet on a few sunny days on the familiar shores of Helsinki. It transpired that I always ended up finding new light to capture and store.
