Art Description

Painting: Oil, Pastel, cyanothype on Canvas.

Here is a Sami-man doing his job as reindeer herder. He is also a life carrier.

I thought about DNA, race, humanity, the beauty of immemorial life.

The bottom figure is made with cyanothype, by exposing light-sensitive liquid and the X-ray film of DNA to sunlight - color and the shadow of DNA appeared.
