PETRI HYTÖNEN ”Small Moments”


Little moments around us
coming and going – never staying put.
With our memory, we can rewind and return to the moment
or paint it. Of course, Martin Reed with his singularity theories is dreaming of time stasis outside of black holes,
but in time even that moment will fade away – I guess.
the world as conscious and aware requires us to do our part and
at the same time, the subconscious is ready to give us its part,
if only we open the door in that direction.

The reality around us is a state of constant enchantment and change – at its best that continues in painting too – bringing out small moments.

My exhibition in Ama gallery consists of photo-based pigment prints on paper, watercolor prints on canvas and boards, and watercolor paintings on paper.

”Small moments” are mainly located on our planet and a little outside of it as well. The
main role is stolen by our earth and man. And different relationships between nature and people.With all due respect to nature and remembering that we are part of nature, even if some asphalt hipsters try to claim otherwise…

Best regards, Petri
