I use charcoal for surfaces which I have scrubbed and wiped countless times. Coal is the most sensitive instrument for drawing, it conveys touch and presence in the most interesting way. The experience of time, a moment of concentration is important for me. Erasuring is as important as adding a meaning. In my works I mainly use coal, photographs and different methods of graphics. The themes in my works are often a person’s life and acts, in my thesis next exhibition is especially life in an allotment garden.

Anne Kimiläinen lives and works in Pori, Finland.
