Maijastiina memorial exhibition
Paintings from Maijastiina, Taimi and Santeri

A bit haiku, a bit mantra, a bit hieroglyphic; the paintings by the Helsinki based Finnish couple open up as visual poems about life. The surroundings of the everyday life and its wonders are the ingredients of the artwork. The free associations and the carefree graphic style invoke the casual drawings on napkins, the almost unconscious doodles made during a telephone conversation. The works is a search for balance between the initiatory and spiritual transcendence of the alchemists, the unproductiveness of play, aesthetic minimalism and the punk attitude of ignorant style. Through the paintings, the door is opened to an experience that is at once metaphysical, playful and irreverent.

To the love of my life, Maijastiina, my exceptionally warm and soulful wife with whom I could work and share my life for 14 years. Our work together continues based on Maijastiina’s sketches.
