<Mirrors

“The mirrors also suggest a portal into another realm – an escape from the harshness of this reality to a place where one can lay one’s head on the gentle moss and find some respite from this life.

For Kulju this work serves to process her own feelings of fragility. She offers us a glimpse into the places where she finds solace and light. She speaks of finding refuge in the details – the mind-boggling intricacy of the work is what grounds her. In the daunting overwhelm of this life Kulju clings to the details in order to stay present.”
