My first ever solo exhibition opens in Gallery G12 in Helsinki city center. The Flying Boat exhibition is a cartoon story on glass. It is a lucid dream with swaying rooms and rooftops. Every glass sculpture has multiple layers of images and the pieces are handcrafted in Helsinki with 100 years old Graal technique mixed with modern 3D design.

Summer in Gumbostrand. 2.6 – 4.9.2016. Vainuddintie 72-28, Söderkulla
Open: Friday–Saturday 11–17 and Sunday 11–16
In Gumbostrand I’m exhibiting playful glass sculptures as a part of the group exhibition. Horses, trees and childhood memories are the main themes for the summer exhibition. The venue is beautiful. It’s close to the sea and in a historic industrial setting. Konst & Form is situated in restored 1950s Hartwall factory building in the Gumbostrand district of Sipoo. It is only a 30-minute trip from the Helsinki city centre.

9.6. – 21.8.2016. Vanha-Koskipään kartano, Hartola
The romantic Maila-Talvio Salon is located in an old country side mansion in Hartola. I’m participating the summer exhibition with some poetry-themed works from the years 2013 – 2015. There will also be our Comic Art In Glass-exhibition in Itä-Häme Museum that is very close by the salon. The salon is one of the few Finnish art exhibitions that is fully organiced by the local municipality.
Peep show -Toinen todellisuus. 28.5. – 14.8.2016. Nuutajärven lasikylä, Vanhan hytin halli
Open 29.5.–14.8.2016 at 11.00 – 17.00
Glass has been manufactured in Nuutajärvi longer than anywhere else in Finland. The glass village is internationally known for the glass and the picturesque environment. So the summer exhibition in there has also very unique theme: it’s a peep show. All the works are hidden inside black wooden boxes and you need to peek trough a small peep hole to have a glimse of the art exhibited.
Tales on glass exhibition shows fairytales that are captures between layers of glass. The logic of dreams and surrealism are the main inspirations for the exhibition. The storylines come together from bits and pieces that slowly evolve like songs or poems. The stories are blown between layers of glass by using a century-old Swedish Graal technique that is mixed up with modern 3D-design. The layered images are created layer by layer during a slow process that takes months.
Tales on glass exhibition is a fairytale under the glass surface. It’s about an animal that travels inside our dreams and bends time, until the dream lasts forever. There is always something hidden in each glass sculpture. Secrets that are revealed only when looked from the right angle thought the glass material.
