Painting is the language, the visual form of thinking and the platform or framework that the idea manifests within. It begins with attempting to verbalise thoughts in the language of an image, while on the other hand thinking is very much tied to comprehension through language. In other words, I take a slow approach to starting the painting process – I build my vocabulary and build a concept based on the language that accumulates.

Olli Piippo's exhibition Felt Certainties runs at Helsinki Contemporary through July 5. Read more about the exhibition >>>
