The anniversary exhibition by the Finnish Felt Association has been curated by visual arts critic Hannu Castrén.craftmuseumfinlandfelthandicraft
The Charm of the Floating Island
Look at the sunset
floating fire-islands move
imperial over cream green seas.
Islands on fire! Islands like torches!
Islands on victory parade!

Carborundum is a printmaking technique that landed in Finland in the late 1980's, where the printmaking plate is painted with a mixture of glue and carborundum sand. My first works with this technique were prints made from thickly painted plates with undiluted paint. With time, the prints have become more delicate. Controlled coincidences frequent in my current work. I might think of a certain colour; the sodden chill conferred by an autumn storm, a beach gilded orange by the sun, a longing that paints the sky black...

This autumn arrives with the 120th anniversary of Urho Lehtinen's (1887-1982) birth. We commemorate the artist by directing our gaze at his homestead and the images of his loved ones. His beloved atelier home, Pälvelä, and the beautiful houses and idyllic gardens of the Jyväskylä of his time were documented in his work. The blaze of the blooming garden of Pälvelä brought rich and vibrant colours into his work.
The artist's spouse, Anneli Lehtinen, and his granddaughter Outi Markkanen have participated in the making of the exhibition.

Spanish painter Bartolomé Roca’s paintings are like colourful Spanish fans, which gradually open up to the eyes of the viewer, one sensation at a time – strong colours, abundant themes, movement and shifting forms. With careful observation, many newfound nuances and details rise to the surface and the complexity of the work is enhanced. At the same time, each and every painting breathes harmony into its own shapes and depths, and unites the exhibition as a whole.Jyväskylä Art Museumexhibition

“My work is based on the admiration of the diversity of nature, to which I return again and again. How much happens in our environment and how little is observed.

“I am a socialist-anarchist-individual-collectivist-individualist-communist-aristocratic-democratic” was the answer the influential American research journalist Henry Demarest Lloyd (1847–1903), gave when asked of his political views. Lloyd was uninterested in categorizing himself and instead brought forward the complex relationship between the private and the communal. Lloyd’s answer is the starting point for the exhibition curated by Tellervo Kalleinen and Oliver Kochta-Kalleinen.Jyväskylä Art Museumexhibition
