October Pinkish Grey

Tõnis Saadoja, "October. Pinkish Grey", oil on canvas, 2021

In the painting series “September, October, ...” my focus lies equally on two aspects - how to portray an unfunctional environment and how to paint a picture that is primarily about painting? I’m interested in the poetic dimension of an image and the conditionality inherent in the painting process provides one possibility to amplify this.

Painting is, first and foremost, a potential that may lead to new connections and meanings. It can also lead back to old routes and there’s nothing wrong with that either. But inside every repetition lies something new and gradually everything drifts away from its initial course.
