    Artist Statement

    "Watching how the entire world struggles now to build the future, the first thing that came in my mind was a quote from Donald Sutherland saying that it would have been great if we would have gotten a chance to live our lives backwards. That is exactly what the art series 'One square meter of roots' is trying to sustain: a wise way of living.

    "When creating it, the composition of the paintings was reduced to the same repetitive framing, as the main thought was to express each part of the entire idea with the help of symbols from lives and rituals of the surviving tribes, as they were chosen and considered as letting the art work breath its own message in the most clear way. It was story, it was body art, it was painting, it was drawing, and in the end it became photography; so many levels and so many ways, as a kind of representation of all historical human lessons that made us what we are today and what we can become in the future. All characters in the art works were 'drained' of their own individuality for a better comprehension and fluidity of the narration. The message of each artwork of this collection is explained in details on More about the 'Inuit Resources' on"
