In my Master's thesis work, "ENCOUNTERS...", I was searching for the connections of Visual Art and Music and approached the theme with three portraits of jazz musician/composers. Exhibition in Draakoni Galerii, Tallinn was opened on 15th of May 2013. Including these three portraits; Iro Haarla, Kimmo Pohjonen and Verneri Pohjola, the whole concept was brought together by an audio track and textual elements, which were presented as an installation-like piece in the other room of the gallery.
