Six artists from three generations tackle the problem of deconstructing the image. The starting point was experiencing the contemporary world, where changes often occur too quickly for their essence to be captured. The painterly visions show disturbing emotions or states of awareness caused by the intangibility of reality produced by this process of continual change. Changes, which we would not be able to define with words, perhaps become visible in an artistic message.
