artist working in all fields
driven by memory
excerpt from an interview given to asta hiippala
A:"Why are you an artist?"
E:"I want to reach people in the way they reach me. Knocking subtly on their door, greeting them with an air of remembrance, evoking an echo…
I find it fascinating to see that we all are woven into this great fabric of life by our experiences, our memories – a lot of people may blame this an old-fashioned way of thinking but for me it still works. There does not have to be a concept, the piece of art has to work on its own, be its own language. Tell something through the line. Yes, I think it is mostly lines and their telling that interest me."
