Ville Vuorenmaa, It is Only the End of the World, 2021

Ville Vuorenmaa (b.1980 Lapua, Finland) is a visual artist, songwriter and musician. Currently, Vuorenmaa is living with his family in Oulu, Finland. Vuorenmaa has been focusing on watercolour painting for several years now. Subject matter in his paintings is often personal. Vuorenmaa likes to combine images with texts.

I did the work improvising it along the way during spring and summer 2021. The picture resembles a message or a notice board. There are small bits of drawing/painting/text done on a piece of paper that I had with me for some months in my backpack. I liked the idea that the image and the paper have aged - that the passing of time has left its marks on the work.
