And so castles made of sand,

fall in the sea, eventually

Jimi Hendrix: Castles Are Made of Sand

In addition to serigraphy, graphic artist Sari Kemppinen ' s (b. 1975) previous exhibitions have featured, among other things, buttons glued to the screen using raster technique. The imagery has included people and landscapes featured in old photographs.

In her new work, Kemppinen continues to make use of raster technique. This time, however, her subjects are pompous and elaborate castles and palaces picked from the pages of books and magazines. In the " In Midas ' Palace " series the raster images have been painted on to an acrylic paint base using gold leaf. In the " Castles Are Made of Sand " series, serigraphy is used to print images on sand glued to sheets of MDF.

" Two parallel themes, greed and the transience of life, run through this exhibition. Greed forms the theme of the " In Midas ' Palace " series. The works depict the golden palace, echoing with emptiness and its inhabitants, frozen into statues. The " Castles Are Made of Sand " series is concerned with transience. The works have been created using beach sand. They are sand castles, literally - symbols of all that is transient."
