Painter Petri Hytönen
He takes us in front of a mirror to show us how abandoned we are. But at the same time he puts transistors roaring, blinking lights on, flags fluttering and trains in motion - so that we could have fun.
Even in the biggest Joy there is a Shimmer of Sorrow. All that Petri Hytönen shows us beatifully and richly.
