Money Machine

MONEY MACHINE
2020
24 pages A5 4/4 self-financed zine
Money Machine was originally done for Zineton 2020 with a theme Poem & Sparkle. It has textually variant content about inner turmoil with just a right amount of hope in the midst of all the angst. Visually it leans heavy on the use of coloured pencil as the only medium, up-scaling original images to bring out the texture.

Released also as a free webzine you can download here

Toxic

Paint 0.0 (Emilia Mäkelä & Roosa Lalja)
2019
168cm x 194cm
spray paint, acryl and oil pastel on canvas

Toxic is a collaboration exhibition between Emilia Mäkelä and Roosa Lalja. It’s a collection of paintings delving in the murky waters of abstract expressionism but at it’s core is the pure joy of painting. A sewer flowing with colours and emotional disturbance creating vortexes of broken tones and lines that work their way through like thread in a labyrinth.

NoSpace


NoSpace

20 pages A5 1/1 self-financed zine

NoSpace deals with stress of maintaining possibilities for producing art such as workspace access and health both mentally and physically. I created this zine when
I rented a workspace from Pyynikin Trikoo which is an old factory building. Now many of the financially accessible workspaces has been turned to expensive apartments.
