Aleksiina Salmi (B. 1994) graduated as a visual artist from Kaarisilta in 2016. Salmi’s themes generate from reality, but she studies them through fantasy. Strong colors, rythmic work with the surface and brave positioning repeat themselves in her artwork. Mainly, Salmi paints animal themes, but she adds symbolic elements to them. Dark clouds, blood and strong backlight may modify the atmosphere in the paintings so, that the fun and lightness perceived at first look remain ostensible after all, and darker shades can be discovered beneath the surface.
The exhibition will be open from the 6th till the 29th of September. Wed-Fri 12-18, Sat-Sun 12-16.
Welcome to the opening party on Thursday, September 5th, from 5 to 7 pm!
