Paintings and drawings from the Blindsight exhibition in Galleria BE'19, Helsinki
Blindsight I 100x80
Deeper than dreams 40x40
awake 40x 30
(suomeksi) My blindsight, that primal pre-conscious vision we share with frogs and lizards, leads me to a strange dark world between figure and abstract. I throw myself into the drawing because I know that if I hesitate for even a second all will be lost. Three hours later the floor around me is littered with drawings. Who are all those mysterious faces, these portraits of people I have never seen ? How did those organic forms twisting in and out of an evolutionary swamp find their way into my drawings ? I don't understand them. They just slither away. But I know that they exist.
