Description

Iisa Maaranen: Stone in a Watering Can

Iisa Maaranen‘s solo exhibition Stone in a Watering Can extends over Forum Box’s Permanto and Monttu. The exhibition consists of works thinly painted on cotton with gum arabic tempera, moving between the figurative and the abstract. The imprint of the paintings is dominated by movement and rhythm, but at the same time the atmosphere is quiet and empty.

The works show glimpses of a home milieu. The turquoise color is repeated in the paintings in the exhibition, bringing to surface the sources from which we seek refuge. The paintings pause at various small moments and are loaded with meanings.

The mood swings between light and dark like an endlessly changing landscape of emotions. The thin painting spreads on the canvas with light vortices, it thickens, searches for a reference point, changes direction and eventually escapes beyond definitions. The atmosphere wanders from presence to absence and back.
