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.
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.
