Kai Virihaur, Stockholm, Sweden Member Since July 2007 Artist Statement I live in a European country called Sweden. At one point, I almost emigrated to the US - I came to live there over five years. I especially liked the landscapes and people in northern California. During those years, I was very much stimulated by American artists.
I have been creating photographic images since I was in my teens, and I now utilize digital tools to express my inner visions. Thus, my images are made by digitally enhancing the intent of my original photographs, in various ways.
I use the word "candid" to express my striving to eliminate everything but the core; to say what I have to say candidly and without un-necessary filler.
My interests are centered around the primal instincts inherent in being human: our spiritual connectedness with nature; the body; the sex drive.
