Release these chains
Finnish: (Irti näistä kahleista)

Digital painting / photomanipulation.
2006.

I wanted this scene to represent a sense of liberation and relief, but at the same time to show how painful it can be to find the courage within to show your 'true face' and confront the world. This creature is doomed to live in the shadows and dark secret places, but it's really up to himself how he wants to face his destiny and meaning of life.
