Alchemia Detail

Statement:
It has become more and more important for me, as an artist from Finland, to experience the northern atmosphere and its essential elements. Frost, snow and ice transform nature into a unique world of light and structure. For some time I have been working with yellow mica trying to solve the mystery of northern elements. The potential of this material seems endless.
