Urban Vision 11.09. – 29.09. 2019

Urban Vision

Kaupunki ja elämä urbaanissa ympäristössä on aina ollut kiinnostava kohde taiteessa.
Rakennettu kaupunki, kaupunkiluonto, ja sen asumisen sekä elämisen kulttuurit rakentavat omalta osaltaan kaupungin monimuotoisuutta ja luonnetta.
Asukkaat ja ihimillisen elämän kaikki ilmiöt luovat sen sydämen. Kova ja herkkä elävät rinnakkain ja vastakkainasettelutkin ovat osa urbaania kaupunkiyhteisöä.
Oman aikamme taide tarkastelee erityisesti kaupunkimaailmaa ja sen ilmiöitä
Galleria Kookoksen Urban Vision näyttelyssä.

Urban Vision

The city and the life in an urban environment has always been an interesting subject in art.

The built envoirment, the urban nature and the different cultures of living contribute to the diversity and character of a city. The inhabitants and the contrasting realities of the human life create the heart. Rough and sensitive living side by side with the confrontations are part of an urban community.

Contemporary art looks at the urban world and its expression at the Urban Vision exhibition of Galleria Kookos.

Vernissage 10.9. 2019 at 6 – 8 pm.

Bela Czitrom 

The themes of my work come from mythology and fantasy. They also have their own life experiences and the influence of my mysterious native Transylvania.

Aino Keinänen

My works represent the power of nature, its ability to grow through thick rock and to invade humanmade constructions. Nature also refers to the innermost of a human being, something that pushes out and is impossible to hide forever. Even an urbanised person longs for nature and needs it to keep in touch with their body and their life.

Painting is important to me, like eating and sleeping …
I get idea from everyday things. People ‘s nature and face tell us a lot. I want to go deeper than the surface, which requires dedication and solitude.

Pauliina Waris

As a painter I’m primarily interested in everything and I can’t think of any topic which would not be a good subject for my work. Often I get excited about some phenomena of human life becoming concrete or becoming visible in some short moment. Especially interesting are the moments when something suddenly and surprisingly reveals itself – for example in micro expressions on peoples faces, an object someone dropped or left lying around, a layer of dust on top of the closet. These kind of everyday matters also make me pay attention on how we define things and use language, whether it consists of sounds, letters, pictures or other elements.

Right now I’m interested in the definition of emptiness, which often seems to have something to do with human being or with the absence or presence of human being or life. My thoughts about emptiness have lately been the starting point of my paintings, or I’ve noticed afterwards that the painting has to do with them. As I go along painting, I pay attention to light and form and to the way different materials act and become visual together. The final artwork is a result of the interaction between planned and intuitive working – sometimes it happens after a long fight and sometimes it seems to happen by itself. I use a lot of egg tempera, pigments, pencil and oil pastels. The base I use is recycled every time it’s possible and mostly it’s organic by origin. Recycled and organic material has in some ways present it’s former life, so the beginning of the painting is always there before I’ve actually made any brush strokes.

My wish is that my paintings would make the viewer see something familiar or odd, which would make them stop for a moment and maybe communicate a while with it.
