Galerie Forsblom at CHART ART FAIR 2021
August 27–29, 2021
Galerie Forsblom is excited to announce participation at the CHART ART FAIR 2021!
The gallery is proud to present the Finnish artist Jenni Hiltunen with her vivid oil paintings, works on paper, and ceramic sculptures, together with paintings and a bronze sculpture by the Greek artist Jannis Varelas.
Jenni Hiltunen (b. 1981) is a bold user of color and examiner of humanity. She creates in her art an intensive narration, where worldview is defined outside the margins. Hiltunen avoids strict categorization: she builds the moments, moods, and situations utilizing topics collected from international fashion blogs and ads. She exaggerates without over-moralizing. Her attitude is more reflective than declarative.
An ironic narrative style is typical of the Greek artist Jannis Varelas (b.1977), whose imaginative art often addresses social issues in a subtle yet playful way. Varelas is never coy about questioning prevailing social norms, which he does in his distinctively expressive, surreal, and naïvist style. His sculpture entitled The Raft – a human-like figure holding unusual utensils on a seagoing vessel – is a perfect example of Varelas' playful approach.
