TAPANI PIIRTO, oil paintings & PERTTI MÄKINEN, straw works

Taidesalonki Piirto
Uudenmaankatu 7
 
2.-31.12.2014
 
TAPANI PIIRTO, "FLASHES OF LIFE" – Oil paintings
”I try to capture those fleeting moments”. When I have a canvas fixed to an easel, a brush in my hand and music playing in the background, it is the best feeling I know. For me, painting is not a work. Instead it is a passion and a therapy. When painting, I forget myself. And aren’t people at their best when they forget themselves?” – Tapani Piirto
 
PERTTI MÄKINEN, straw works – himmeli mobiles and other ornaments
Most of the straw mobiles in this exhibition are based on the traditional pyramidal model. If you cannot find a straw mobile that suits your needs from this exhibition, you can order it. If you already have a straw mobile but it's not in its best shape any more, contact me and I will fix it for you. – Pertti Mäkinen

Marja Uusiluoto-Raaska´s interest in art was activated in 2001 as she started her studies in oil painting. Her works of art are mostly strong and humorous, but in some of them you can find a strong sensitive feeling.
