It’s probably no surprise that I draw constantly and I possess several sketchbooks. I process thoughts by drawing, and not all of my drawings are ambitious or finished. Now that I’m planning art pieces for next year’s exhibitions, so I decided to have a look into my sketchbooks, so here are some samplings!

I apologize the ungraceful copyright texts, but I have encountered a company selling my pics as prints without my permission… So these drawings are here for you to look, comment, get inspired, share on-line or to ask my services as an illustrator -not to print and use commercially.

The first drawing Kuolemankukka has to do with human’s and nature’s relationship and way we poison our surroundings and ourselves. The second drawing was inspired by The Rite of Spring -the ballet, where dancers make expressive mad jumps. The third drawing can be titled as Housewarming party and the last drawing… well it’s just about the great feeling of  Disbelief.

 

Some of the Firebird themed artworks have flown to Maila Talvio -salong in Hartola, central Finland. The summer exhibition opens on 8th of June, and the assembly presents paintings, sculpture -and glass- from several artists.

Summer exhibition at Maila Talvio – salong 9.6.-21.8.2016

Koskipääntie 4, 19600 Hartola

Open Tue-Fri 11-18, Sat-Sun 

Meanwhile there’s some pretty hot stuff to be seen at Nuutajärvi, as Peep show – other realities – summer exhibition is also running. Next week I’ll be having too much fun and excitement as I’m traveling to Corning N.Y. and Glass Art Society’s annual conference. Sure to be inspired!


Tulintu teoksia on lennähtänyt Hartolaan, sillä ensi viikolla 8.6. aukeaa Maila Talvio -salongin taiteen kesänäyttely. Useamman taiteilijan kattauksessa on nähtävillä maalauksia, veistoksia -ja lasia.

Nuutajärven kesänäyttely rullaa myös elokuulle asti, joten tässä kesä-Suomen matkaajille käyntikohteita. Mutta oikeasti nyt jänskättää Ameriikan matka, pian on nimittäin Corningissa, Yhdysvalloissa lasitaiteen suur-tapahtuma Glass Art Societyn konferenssi. Sinne on tarkoitus mennä ihmettelemään ja inspitoitumaan.

The best way to start the new year is by getting fresh photos of last years artworks! These pieces, The Encounter, Hanging Tree and Let’s hide in the woods, play with the idea that a handcrafted glass piece projects surreal visions on the falls. Thanks to photographer Iiro Immonen, the scenes of light and darkness were captured in photos.
