Letters
Galleria Huuto Uudenmaankatu
21 January – 8 February 2015

The Letters exhibition features drawings. The artworks are semi-fictitious portraits, rooms and landscapes. They are based on documentary observations of the surroundings and moments when seemingly nothing happens. The works have been created over the past three years in Helsinki, Mynämäki, Prague and Florence with familiar and unfamiliar as well as private and public spaces such as homes, parks, cities and fields mixing together.

Laura Ukkonen (b. 1977) works with drawings. Her works vary from large charcoal, pencil and colored pencil drawings to small ink drawings. Ukkonen works in Helsinki and she completed her master’s degree in fine arts at Aalto University in 2012. She is currently undertaking MA studies in art education at Aalto University. Recently she has expanded her artistic repertoire to illustrations. Ukkonen illustrates the Yksityisasia pictorial story which has been published in the Voima magazine between 2013 and 2014.

The exhibition has been supported by the Kone Foundation. Some of the works included in the exhibition were created in the Saari Residence at the beginning of 2014 where the artist was surrounded by the peace of the manor and the darkness of the snowless winter.
