Mixed media on recycled paper

This mixed media work has been inspired by the landscape that Sinkkonen passed every day on her way to the studio. Polished buildings above the steep riverside reflect a class society, which, in spite of skepticism, also lives in Finland. The sewer at the river surface symbolizes the conditions in our society for the most disadvantaged people, both mentally and physically. The dark, frightening, filthy roots are trying to keep the model village up, with the river raging below. A river that is considered as a trash can where all the shit from upstears are flowing. Out of sight out of mind.
