Exhibition at Ikuinen Gallery: Sofi Häkkinen - Tall tales and true stories

Tall tales and true stories (2013)
Sofi Häkkinen

Ikuinen Galleria 5.11-15.11.2013

The drawings and paintings in the series portrait different moments. Quick thoughts, hasty touches, passing feelings. The media supports the idea of a swift glimpse of a moment, captured on paper so the viewer can always return to that one instant that was so important.

Sofi Häkkinen is a second year fine arts student in Tampere University of Applied Sciences. Her main media is drawing and painting. Her work is mostly based on the conflicts and feelings, as well as certain cravings and obsessions between two people. As a starting point Häkkinen uses a mixture of memories, moments, faint touches that meant something big and easily forgotten glances.

Ikuinen Gallery is a contemporary art project space located in the old factory complex Finlayson in central Tampere. The gallery is run by a board of fine art students in Tampere UAS School of Art and Media as part of their study program. Ikuinen Gallery’s main focus is in presenting interesting and high quality student work as well as work of other adventurous artists.
