Print & Photographic Works by Jaana Erkkilä & Eija Timonen
Saturday 30th March - Friday 12th April 2019
The Exhibition will be opened by Dr.Jaakko Nousiainen, The Head of Culture in The Finnish Institute in London. The art works by Erkkilä and Timonen are about finding a landscape that is far beyond reality. They reach towards mythological sceneries, up to the stars and down to the deep waters.
Eija Timonen has constructed her images through photographing the reflections of light in the cracks of ice. The images in this exhibition are the result of her years’ long systematic work outside on the ice and inside in her studio. Eija Timonen is the Professor of Media Studies in the University of Lapland, Finland. She is also a practising artist and a published author of several books.
Jaana Erkkilä is interested in the spiritual and metaphysical dimensions of life. She brings legends and invisible worlds into life in her multi-coloured woodcuts. Some of the creatures in her images live in holes and caves or under the bare sky, like deviants of the world, still so different from human beings. Jaana Erkkilä (-Hill) is the professor of visual arts in the University of Lapland and Vice Rector for Research at the University of Arts Helsinki.
