Trying to write the letter "J" around the statue of J. L. Runeberg, a national poet, in honor of conceptual artist and friend, J. O. Mallander.
One of Mallander's early works, as part of a series called "Paper Sculptures" and dating back to almost four decades, depicted said statue with the image of Runeberg covered by a huge upside-down letter J. An early influence on me and a nod to Claes Oldenburg, for sure.
