Lines, Bits and Plants

Virtual Exhibition

This exhibition is Mikko Paakkonen’s third solo exhibition in Helsinki. His two previous exhibitions were held at ARTag Gallery. Meanwhile, Paakkonen has completed his Master’s Degree in the Academy of Fine Arts of Helsinki. His painting style has also moved from gestural painting to a more layered approach.

Paakkonen is a pure-blooded Informalist, an abstract painter with works where form equals content. Splotches of colour with their tracings, strong contrasts and shades venturing on the border of beauty are real, because we see them in these paintings. They do not exist anywhere else.
