TOPI RUOTSALAINEN

I paint people
Human beings, the human
Human characteristics
Ways of being
Obsessions and efforts
The desire to own, to possess, to receive, to experience
The desire for another human being
The desire for the world
A human amongst human beings
The world amongst human beings

And yet, the act of painting human beings remains secondary to me. After all, the people in my paintings are just building blocks, brush strokes in human form, mere elements conveying my experience of the world.

In Possessions & Positions, the game is is still on. Who gets to play king of the hill? Who sets the rules? And how far to the next hill?
