Pirjetta Brander´s works are like maps: the lines of the drawings lead the viewer to the various levels of everyday life. The works may refer to the wait for Christmas or to the need to feed a child at certain hours. Pirjetta’s drawings are filled with joy, sometimes beautiful or deliberately ugly. The central theme in the works is arctic survival. Although Pirjetta is a skillful craftswoman, she may as well produce a video, installation or painting.– Artist Tea Mäkipää on her collague Pirjetta Brander
