Sami Havia – Estranged
Massey Klein Gallery presents Estranged, a solo exhibition of new paintings and drawings by Sami Havia. The exhibition will be on view from September 2nd through October 8th. An opening reception will be held on Saturday, September 10th from 4-7pm. This is the artist’s first solo exhibition with the gallery.
Sami Havia’s works explore the relationship between the abstract and figurative with a focus on light and observation. Surrealist in nature, Havia’s paintings are accidental yet deliberate. The seven new paintings and nine drawings presented in Estranged are pictorial representations of Havia’s phantasmagorical observations rooted in reality. Each painting is a mutation of the artist’s pictorial mind map, imagination, and subconscious. Some paintings contain figurative elements shrouded in absurd and abstract environmental elements, while others present identifiable human figures, absorbed into landscapes and escaping reality with an accentuated playfulness.

Tiina Mielonen – Aineenvaihdunta – Stoffwechsel
Tiina Mielonen takes part in a group exhibition “Aineenvaihdunta – Stoffwechsel” at plan.d. Produzentengalerie in Düsseldorf, Germany.
The exhibition is an exchange project between two galleries – plan.d. in Dusseldorf and Galleria Huuto in Helsinki. “Aineenvaihdunta – Stoffwechsel” has a number of meanings and connotations: it can mean metabolism, but also the exchange of fabrics or material change. It can also be about the artistic approach – processing different thoughts, impressions, and ideas into the production of art. The topic has also encouraged a dialogue between the two galleries since “Stoffwechsel” implies a kind of exchange.

Jukka Siikala – Unnatural Encounters
Finnish Painter Jukka Siikala participates in the event Unnatural Encounters by Infinity Land Press. Go and meet the artist!
The event will take place on the 1st of October 2022 and will begin with a book sale & art exhibition followed by an evening of readings, screenings, book launches, and performances.
Unnatural Encounters is a gathering of bodies, a confluence of minds, an assemblage of artists – a site within which language, visuals, and music break free of their bonds and then burst forth in an orgy of performance and spectacle. A place and a time in which boundaries dissolve and genres explode. Go and meet the Finnish Painter Jukka Siikala. He is known for his bizarre and wonderful paintings and his photo and video work dealing with the themes of surreal sexuality and sociological perspective on nature and life.

Sirkku Rosi – Veck
The Exhibition at Finlandsinstitutets gallery in Stockholm consists of watercolors and hair sculptures where the lightness of the materials is combined with the skin, flesh, internal organs, and folding bodies. The skin is a leaky boundary between the person and the environment. Fluids circulate, the human body merges with the earth, carbon dioxide moves, and something grows from friction. The beginning of a small thicket emerges from the folds.
Sirkku Rosi works with watercolors based on bodily experience. She is interested in the shared nature of being between everything cellular and the knowledge of the flesh. In Rosi’s works, the twisting curves of the intestines are maps to the garden, and the organs penetrating through the skin are compared to stones polished by time.
Eeva Peura – CHART ART FAIR 2022
Eeva Peura is presented by Galerie Forsblom at the CHART 2022 in Copengagen. Galerie Forsblom spotlights four Finnish artists: Emma Helle, Kaarina Kaikkonen, Eeva Peura, and Kim Simonsson. All four represent different media – Helle ceramics, Kaikkonen textile art, Peura painting, and Simonsson ceramics with a nylon fiber coating. Their featured works cover a diverse spectrum, yet there are visible synergies and kinships between them, such as boundless curiosity in exploring what it means to be human, whether through the lens of history, social practice, or fantasy.
