<p></p>
<p>In the works, people encounter Merenmies’s rich inner world and its diverse, captivating and poignant characters. The images are indisputably regardful and sincere, with interior visions and experiences running parallel with everyday observations. We are in the presence of a flood of profound questions in which nature, humanity, saints and sinners all flow side by side.</p>

<p>The exhibition consists of new paintings and works on paper, most of them completed in the past three years, although some were begun much earlier. The process must be given time to evolve in peace. In many of the paintings, Merenmies returns to subjects going back decades – things that first sparked her soul. At times the artist’s life resembles the paintings she made years ago. Merenmies recounts with delight how little birds came peering in from the balcony door when she started painting the exhibition’s large title piece: “There they were, looking at me, my Heavenly Host!”</p>
