Artwork: Pilvi Ojala
Pilvi Ojala (b. 1973) observes inner drama in a calm, almost restrained way. In her recent works she depicts her dreams and feelings, making use of a long tradition of religious and mythological imagery.The strong connection to art history paired with an almost ruthless introspection gives these self portraits a strange, ambigious quality. Life is tragic, angst a daily companion, sorrow so ordinary it needs a body of it´s own. But when Ojala puts her figures in the limeligth of her small stages, it triggers laughter. There is great relief in seeing that what bugs us most, also make us laugh.
Ojala studied printmaking in Kuvataideakatemia, in Helsinki. She says that se slipped into painting almost accidentally. This might be why it is so easy to look at her paintings. The material itself is not a problem, rather, it is the most precise way to tell us about life seen through her eyes.
