Art does not always have to embody a deeper meaning in need for discerning. Instead of trying to understand every aspect of something, it is perhaps better to encourage curiosity and questions. There is a tendency that information must be sorted into categories and provide answers. At the same time, it is impossible to comprehend or give answers to the existential questions like why we are here, why some must die suddenly, what is the black matter of the universe, or what exactly evokes a melody.

Feelings, beliefs, and sensations are parts of an inner intellect which operates on a different level than the analytical, but not less important for that reason. Perhaps it enables us to approach the unknown territory of things that are more obscure.  It is very easy to deem the unmeasurable or uncategorized as less important due to the fact we may have moved too far away from what feels natural to us.

Answers to many questions can be found by looking at works of art, but sometimes even more question arises. That's why I like looking at them. For me, interesting works of art open doors to new worlds, and it is exiting to enter. The three artists who are part of the exhibition Triangle represent this. They create worlds where we can understand new things, and this is something I want to share with others. The three artists connect in terms of expression but are also fundamentally divergent. They create works that are sensitively and delicately processed and solved and demonstrates that art is constantly moving towards new awareness and understanding.
