Rusty sketches is a trilingual book on art and poetry.

Rusty sketches is a trilingual book on art and poetry.

Its short, aphorism-like poems, written in Arabic, Finnish and English, form a dialogue with its illustrations depicting the absurdity of war and the emotions connected to being a refugee. The images have been created with a cumbersome scratchboard technique, where scrapes are made through a dark surface into the light base colour – like travelling from darkness into light.

The gallery is open during Caisa's opening hours.
