Jenny Renlund: Hiljaista 1

Galleria Huuto Uudenmaankatu

The paintings in my exhibition deal with feelings of loneliness and isolation. I have painted spaces and landscapes through which I want to express an atmosphere of oppressive silence and emptiness, but also a feeling of liberation from a restricted life. While painting, I have told myself a story about a person willfully confined in their home, waiting for something, and who then finally has stepped out and left. This person is not visible in the paintings, but traces of them can be seen in the painted spaces. The paintings also tell us about how the environment we build remains and about how it reveals the life we have lived. I am fascinated by people’s relationships with their environments, and questions related to this theme are often visible in my works.

The exhibition has been supported by Svenska kulturfonden.

Welcome to Gallery Huuto Uudenmaankatu on Thursday 24th of August during Night of the Arts! Artist Jenny Renlund will be present from 5 – 8 pm in her newly opened exhibition “Uppbrott – Lähtö – Departure”.
