Artist Statement
Many plants don´t contain the flower bed, yet they spread everywhere. In the garden, plants are checking the neighbors from tiny spaces between the fences. By themselves, they can never return and they have to face new challenges.
People are also very curious to see what is on the other side of the fence in a symbolic meaning. If there is a small possibility to explore past our limits, we may try that. Is the grass greener on the other side? Many times it is impossible to turn back after our move, and it may change our life slightly or sometimes drastically.
In this acrylic painting, red roses represent passion and enthusiasm, green leaves symbolize life and growth, and the brownish gray fence gives an earthy background to the optimistic curiosity.

Artist Bio
I am a Finnish artist living in Canada and I am strongly influenced by the nature and cultures of all the countries where I have lived and visited. When I look at the surroundings and elements, I see symbolic similarities to human life and behavior. My artworks have both symbolic and surrealistic elements. I do not give answers, I raise more questions and I want to lead the viewer onto the thinking journey. I paint mostly with acrylics on canvas, paper, and textile collages.
