Visions of Colour at Jyväskylä Art Museum

The Jyväskylä Art Museum’s exhibition Visions of Colour presents Yrjö Saarinen’s (1899-1958) expressive paintings. A few contemporary artists have also been selected for the exhibition. I am participating in the exhibition with two paintings, of which Ruukkualttari (2020) was on display for the first time at the Tampere Artists’ Association’s 100th anniversary exhibition at the Art Center Mältinranta and Älä ole huolissasi (2020) at the gallery Halmetoja in my solo exhibition Lemmenlaiva. In addition, contemporary artists Jukka Korkeila, Teemu Mäki and Ulla Virta have been invited to the exhibition.

The color scheme of the works is also repeated on the walls of the museum. Contemporary works of art are in dialogue with Saarinen’s production, settling among his works. My paintings are on opposite walls of the exhibition space and thus also communicate with each other across the hall.

I am happy to be part of this exhibition. It feels especially important because I used to live in Jyväskylä for a long time and the art museum is a familiar and special place for me.

The exhibition is open until January 9, 2022, so there is plenty of time to visit during the Christmas holidays, for example. For more information, visit the museum website:
