Sirkka Laakkonen - Artist Statement

I am a visual artist from Finland. My studies, working as an artist and numerous exhibitions have been polymorphous.; national as well as international consisting of art and artists from diverse backgrounds. Art for mr is the language for unufying people. I have got acquaunyed with various of making art and practice them in m y work. Like an ancient Minoan artist in Crete used clay pots I use canvas and colours to bring out the beauty in everyday life; people, pots, flowers.
What I paint now is a result of all I have ever felt. I do not paint objects, I paint feelings. Yet I do not want to paint hate or anger, I do not want them in my life.
