Jussi Pirttioja / Mikko Rekonen



6.7. – 30.7.2022




The paintings deal with an individual’s inner struggle: the relationship between the fear of death and existence. How to find meaning in the midst of addictions? A person is disturbed by the desire to be freed from moral control and sense of security. On the other hand, everything, the whole life, can be experienced as senseless and pointless. I try to deal with the tension between these things in my paintings.

A work of art is view of the world, a proposition, even a thesis – and the art experience is the subjective interpretation of these propositions.
