“Water can become steam or ice.” This observation, made by the young artist in Finland where she pursued her desire to work with images, following a solid background in philosophy, is at the heart of her exploration. An interrogation of identity, sexual among others, since everything is possible and choices are the result of complex alloys of circumstance, encounters, feeling and perception, and will power.
