Jussi Pirttioja, Mikko Rekonen: paintings, tm•gallery 6.7.-30.7.2022–
In my latest works, I have taken influences in my painting work from the mass of images created by artificial intelligence, its inaccuracies, the way it distorts and the inability to understand the content of the material it steals and mutilates from the Internet. Figurativeness, spatiality, texture and abstraction come together in a kind of sprawling language.
My paintings deal with the existential struggle experienced by an individual. Big questions, like how to find experiences of meaning and feelings of permanence in this messy, addiction-filled world. A person is disturbed by the desire to be freed from moral control and a sense of security.
