Galerie Forsblom (FI)

Galerie Forsblom holds a unique position in the Nordic art scene as one of the largest and most international contemporary art galleries operating in the region. Whilst the gallery’s exhibition programme incorporates a wide range of different visual media, Galerie Forsblom is renowned for representing excellence in both contemporary painting and sculpture. Founded in 1977 by Kaj Forsblom, Galerie Forsblom has from the very beginning presented works by established Finnish and international artists to both local and international audiences. Today the gallery’s Studio space functions as an additional context for presenting works by a carefully selected group of younger artists.

Eeva Peura (FI)

Eeva Peura’s paintings are an amalgam of found images, imagined memories, and a contrary mix of painting styles. She is intrigued by the way reality and fantasy becomes jumbled in our minds, and this fusion is what lends her paintings their fierce intensity. Peura’s paintings take shape through deep concentration on details such as tree branches, moons, rippling water, and the forms of plants and animals, but intuition and chance play an equally important role in her process.

Eeva Peura (b. 1982, Orimattila; FI) majored in painting at Helsinki’s Academy of Fine Arts, graduating in 2011. She has held numerous solo and group exhibitions in Finland. In summer 2018 she was based in Paris as artist-in-residence at the Cité Internationale des Arts. In 2019 she won the William Thuring Prize.
