2011 oil on canvas, 40x40

This name could be also "The death of Odette", but I thought that name could be too rough leaving just too little for everybody's imagination.


2011 oil on canvas, 40x40

Odile is the black swan from the ballet Swan Lake, daughter of evil sorcerer Von Rothbar. Odile is passionate, cunning, vibrant, cold-blooded and she doesn't avoid any means.

Whatever Lola wants...

 2011 oil on canvas 50x70

In the spirit of Whatever Lola wants by Gotan Project and Sarah Vaughan. One of my favourite songs.

"Whatever Lola wants, Lola gets
And little man, little Lola wants you
Make up your mind to have no regrets
Recline yourself, resign yourself, you're through

I always get what I aim for
And your heart and soul is what I came for

Whatever Lola wants, Lola gets
Take off your coat
Don't you know you can't win?

You're no exception to the rule
I'm irresistible, you fool
Give in!"

Between us/Välissämme

2011 oil and acrylic on canvas 50x60

Relationships can be complicated. E.g. we have so many roles in life and we wear so many different social masks that there are sometimes quite difficult to get to know each other, how they really are deep inside.

One lonely star/Yksin

2011 Oil and acrylic on canvas 55x30

The mask theme continues and will continue in the future. They're too stick in my head right now, in many senses ;)
This one is named by Madonna's Take a bow -song. That song has very strong lyrics and they have always touched me. 

"Take a bow, the night is over
This masquerade is getting older
Lights are low, the curtains down
There's no one here
[There's no one here, there's no one in the crowd]
Say your lines but do you feel them
Do you mean what you say when there's no one around [no one around]
Watching you, watching me, one lonely star
[One lonely star you don't know who you are]"

When that Take a bow was released, I was a teenager and there were this boy that I always thought when I heard this song, but now the meanings has changed to me... I don't even know If they remind me of someone else or just me. There are sometimes that kind of moments when you're with people and kinda entertaining them but deep inside you are feeling alone.

Who are you?/Kuka sinä olet?

2011 Acrylic on canvas 65x75

On commission, in private collection

Two conquests: a male figure and acrylics. Name is from the Who's legendary song Who are you. And that was the question that I pondered when I was painting this.

I have this thing about masks especially Venetian ones. At the same time they are beautiful, fascinating but also kinda scary. You'll never know what kind of expression someone have behind the mask.
