Turku (FI) 2015
DISTANCE relates to space and time. Since winter 2009, I have spent several months as artist-in-residence in different regions of Finland where I started the drawing project »experiencing landscape«, which captures Finnish nature. To explore the seasons, I continued the project during artist-in-residence stays in the following years. Galleria Å showed works from 2009–2015.

Mänttä (FI) 2015
During my stay at Serlachius Residency Mänttä I set out to connect shapes and colours between natural, architectural surroundings and interior decoration in the city. The immediate result is a series of drawings named »Constructed Space«. This series deals with local sites, special places.To render the show more personal, I hung my drawings on the walls like a map – starting with a self portrait – so visitors would walk through Mänttä just as I experienced the place.
