At Night the Roads Disappear by, Janne Parviainen
From Artist a Day

Janne Parviainen has created a personal painting technique that reflects the urban and technology centered life of today. His most common subjects are city environments and nature landscapes.Parviainen paints on old, used windows with his mixed-technique that involves oil color, metal leaves and permanent markers. Working on both sides of the glass, he produces a very strong feeling of depth and space into his paintings. As a historical element, the old window panes create a story of their own; life has been observed through the windows countless times before in their previous use. The metal leaves presenting the sky with their luminosity and reflections emphasize the paintings’ technology-influenced appearence and so on distract it from the traditional nature portraits.In the paintings of Janne Parviainen the urban landscapes – built by human hands and forgotten by the public eye – represent the city and it’s emotional concept. For today’s urban people, Finnish national landscape no longer is a top-of-the-hill view opening to a summery lake, but a constructed urban view, a place where you can associate with your history, actions and memories. The view of the painting reaches the city structures from a distance, like a snapshot through a window. The viewer of the painting can only anticipate the presence of people, they are not visible. The Trainyard and the urban landscape present themselves as selfindulgent and process-like.
