Artist Katja Tukiainen (b. 1969) builds in Galerie Forsblom her Beautiful World exhibition, whose thematic elements rise from life’s joys and grievances, familiar or unknown. The exhibition consists of paintings and sculptures. In Tukiainen’s works, feminine figures find endless new horizons to conquer. The significance of place is emphasized in the new paintings. The works’ narrative main character may be a cat or a familiar preteen girl. The paintings’ picaresque quality displaces rigid lines, and the pinks and violets overcome the gray.
