I too try to offer a seat for the beholder of my paintings. I outline a chair, a stool, I portray an armchair.

Lotte Nilsson-Välimaa

“Diana”. Ich weiß nicht, ob es das Licht war, das ihr seltsam in die Augen fiel. Aber ich erinnere mich, wie berührt ich war, als ich in ihr blau-meliertes Rund, ihre Iris, sah. Und der Blick wurde weiter in die dunkle Pupille gezogen. Das monumentale Gemälde entstand in einer performativen Situation 2022.

Kenneth Pils

Von Kindheitserinnerungen inspirierte Aquarellbilder in einer Mixed-Media-Installation.
Von der Bildwelt in den physischen Raum – ein Kunstwerk, das man umrunden und lesen kann wie eine 3-dimensionale Collage und dabei totalen Szenenwechsel erlebt. Ein wenig, als ob man sich erst streitet und dann Freunde wird.

 

Juha Sääski (Helsinki)

Juha SääskiDie Mixed-Media-Arbeiten auf Papier beschäftigen sich mit der Frage: Was ist ein gutes Leben in einer Atmosphäre von Unsicherheit oder gar Angst? Ist es möglich, die schlimmen Vorfälle auszublenden, die in unsere hoffnungsvollen Gedanken, in unser
glückliches Zuhause eindringen? Ist es Eskapismus?

Danke, ich komme nun mit der Dunkelheit zurecht. Tatsächlich kann sie wahnsinnig schön sein. Es kommt auf das Licht an, das man setzt, um sie zu erkennen.

Jukka Suhonen

I was born in 1963 in Joensuu, Finland, where I live and work to this day.
I studied arts for three years (1985- 1988) at Kankaanpää art school. I am a member of Finnish painters association, and also a member of Joensuu art association.
My works are in Finland state collection, city of Joensuu collection and health care district of Joensuu area. Also, they can be found in many private collections.
Art exhibition activities: 28 solo exhibitions, 54 group exhibitions and 12 Finland state art group exhibitions.
During my artistic career I have used many kind of painting methods. I’ve painted with oil colors, water soluable aquarelles, acrylic paints, and also drawings liquid inks in many colors.
Nowadays I am using acrylic paint on canvas and drawing black ink pens on paper.

I paint figurative works. Often on my canvases you can see only one or few body details: one leg, legs, head, or many heads and so on… I use also hints of other living creatures, like animals, or pieces of built environment by humans.

Maybe I want to describe tensions between individuals, temporal nature of life and also how fragile it is in many ways. Maybe there are also thoughts about hatred, love, and absolute evil which surround us sometimes.

Harri Turunen

I am Harri Turunen, a sculptor from North Karelia.
Herbarium is a collection of plant samples.
The samples may be whole plants or parts thereof and they may be stored dried and pressed.
The material of the flora is painted iron wire. The significance of nature and human diversity is present (in the work). On a larger scale, the lack of intra-species diversity is a threat.

Saimi Suikkanen’s exhibition Having the time of my life displays paintings from a series called “Self-portraits at home”. In the series Suikkanen confronts the viewer with painted pictures of herself imitating the aesthetics and lifestyles of women on social media platforms. As opposed to the often perfectly composed photographs on Instagram, her paintings depict the mundanity of ordinary life with cluttered and messy surroundings. Through imitation and repetition Suikkanen brings the absurdity of selfie culture and the obsession in being on display to the forefront. Her detailed and colourful large scale paintings emphasise humour. Through the series Suikkanen explores her own thoughts and preconceptions related to the ideal of womanhood and being on display. Suikkanen’s work is a mirror of what is seen as normal and appropriate behaviour for a young woman today.

Saimi Suikkanen (b.1994) is a Finnish painter who creates images of the contemporary life of a young woman in the age of social media. In her art she examines current viewpoints on the female body, sexuality and gender roles through a series of non-literal self-portraits. She is currently studying her Master of Fine Arts degree at the Academy of Fine Arts in Helsinki.

Ember

Ember is a group of huge empty black sacks sewed by hand from tarpaper and paper string. To me these sacks are enormous coal embers that glow in the dark and cold evening. The idea for sacks came from a task of making a work that would illustrate the amount of carbon dioxide produced each year by a Finnish family of four. I thought barbecue parties and the sacks full off black dusty coal. I recall the fire place where the last glow fades away.

Artwork: Pilvi Ojala


Pilvi Ojala, paintings

Pilvi Ojala (b. 1973) observes inner drama in a calm, almost restrained way. In her recent works she depicts her dreams and feelings, making use of a long tradition of religious and mythological imagery.The strong connection to art history paired with an almost ruthless introspection gives these self portraits a strange, ambigious quality. Life is tragic, angst a daily companion, sorrow so ordinary it needs a body of it´s own. But when Ojala puts her figures in the limeligth of her small stages, it triggers laughter. There is great relief in seeing that what bugs us most, also make us laugh.

Ojala studied printmaking in Kuvataideakatemia, in Helsinki. She says that se slipped into painting almost accidentally. This might be why it is so easy to look at her paintings. The material itself is not a problem, rather, it is the most precise way to tell us about life seen through her eyes.
