Juniper is one of the two main and most valuable themes in the work of the 1960s artist Ülo Sooster. The artist said that once he dreamed of a mission — to have time to draw 40 thousand junipers. A mystical task. In general, junipers grew in Estonia, in his homeland, on the island of Hiiumaa. But over time, the juniper tree turned into an abstract image — an existential primordial symbol, a reflection of the unconscious. Therefore, Sooster’s junipers almost never form an earthly landscape. This is usually an abstract alien species.
