Elli Maanpää in Gallery WW Walleniuksen Wapriikki: Luonnon syleily / Natures Embrace - 26 May to 20 Jun 2021

ELLI MAANPÄÄ
Luonnon syleily (Eng. Nature’s Embrace)

DATE: 26 May – 20 Jun 2021
PLACE: Gallery WW, Walleniuksen Wapriikki, Juupajoki, Finland

Mother Nature embraces you trough my paintings. Nature and its creatures – people and animals – get intertwined together in my art. In my figurative paintings I use six shades of acrylic paint to create colourful but cohesive colour palette.

Gallery WW is part of Walleniuksen Wapriikki (Walleniuksenkatu 2, Korkeakoski). It is an old shoe factory in Juupajoki Finland. Just 36km from Mänttä-Vilppula and Serlachius museums.  The art exhibition are open from Tuesday to Sunday from 11-18. The exhibition is FREE to attend.

NÄYTTELYTIEDOTE: Luonnon syleily

Värikkäissä maalauksissani luonnon kasvisto ja sen olennot – ihmiset ja eläimet – kietoutuvat yhteen. Ihmiskehot versoavat luonnosta ja luonto versoaa heistä.

Kukkien joukosta piirtyy esiin myös maaemo. Kun olemme hetkessä läsnä koko kehollamme, luontoäiti syleilee meitä ja pitää meitä hyvänä. Luonto lohduttaa, välittää iloa ja energiaa. Myös taide voi toimia samoin.

Käytän akryylimaalauksissani kuutta maalisävyä, joita sekoittamalla saan runsaan, mutta eheän värisommitelman. Energian kiertäminen näkyy myös maalauspohjissani, jotka ovat toisinaan kierrätyksestä löytyneitä aarteita. Walleniuksen Wapriikin historiaa kenkätehtaana kunnioittaen yksi maalaus on maalattu vanhoille kengille.

Olen kuvataiteilija Elli Maanpää (s.1985 Turku). Teen figuratiivisia maalauksia akryylimaaleilla. Valmistuin taiteen maisteriksi Aalto-yliopiston taiteen laitokselta 2013. Olen opiskellut myös animaatiota Turun Taideakatemiassa ja vaatesuunnittelua Aalto-yliopistossa. 2020 minut valittiin yhdeksi kuudesta nuoresta ”tulevaisuuden taiteilijasta” HELENE20 -taideprojektiin. Asun Helsingissä ja työskentelen ateljeellani Hietalahden Tilajakamossa Bulevardilla. 

Galleria WW sijaitsee Walleniuksen Wapriikissa (Walleniuksenkatu 2, Korkeakoski), vanhassa kenkätehtaassa Juupajoella. Vain 36km Mänttä-Vilppulasta ja Serlachius museoista. Näyttely on ilmainen.

FRAMING TIPS

● Add a natural white passepartout to create more razzle-dazzle to the art print. If you’re hanging more than one art print create rhythm to the composition by framing some of them with and some without passepartout.

Choose the frame colour according the interior design and wall color i.e. if you wall is white add contrast with a darker frame so that the art print stands out.

Ask assistance from a framing shop or interior designer to find the best solution for your unique home.

Before adding hanging hooks you can try out different compositions by cutting out the frame sizes from i.e. newspaper and fitting them together on the wall with tape or blu-tack.

Bonus tip: Add small original paintings/drawings to the composition to make it even more exclusive. Maybe a birthday card you got from your niece?

With just one polka dot, nothing can be achieved.
― Yayoi Kusama

YAYOI KUSAMA – THE ARTIST

Yayoi Kusama (b. 1929) is a Japanese contemporary artist who works primarily in sculpture and installation but she is also active in painting, performance, film, fashion, poetry and other arts. Her trade mark is painting the word with polka dots.

Kusama was born in Japan but she moved to New York City in 1958 because she was fascinated about American Abstract impressionism. She was part of the NYC avant-garde art scene trough out the 1960s. She has been acknowledged as one of the most important living artists to come out of Japan.

My portrait painting of her is based on this (CC BY 4.0) photograph taken of her when she received the honour Person of Cultural Merit from the Order of Culture 2016.

YAYOI KUSAMA AND ME

I saw Yayoi Kusama’s retrospective exhibition “In Infinity” in Moderna Museet in Stockholm in 2016. Here’s a little video vlog from the visit. Like everyone who visited her “Infinity room” there was no turning back: I became a Kusama fan for life there and then.

“I have never tried that before, so I think I should definitely be able to do that.”
― Astrid Lindgren, Pippi Longstocking 

ASTRID LINDGREN – THE ARTIST

Astrid Lindgren (1907 – 2002) was a Swedish writer of fiction and screenplays. Her legendary children’s book characters include Pippi Longstocking and Karlsson-on-the-Roof. She has written also touching children’s fantasy novels like Ronia the Robbers Daughter and The Brothers Lionheart. She wrote more than 30 books for children during her career. She has so far sold roughly 165 million books worldwide.

My portrait painting of her is based on this public domain photograph taken in 1924.

ASTRID LINDGREN AND ME

Her books and strong female characters – like Pippi and Ronia – have been my beloved companions trough my childhood. In the 1st grade our teacher read aloud her book The Brothers Lionheart. It made cry in the class room. Later I’ve read all her books myself.

We also share the same second (or for her it’s the third) name. She is Astrid Anna Emilia Lindgren and I am Elli Emilia Maanpää.

I’ve been absolutely terrified every moment of my life – and I’ve never let it keep me from doing a single thing I wanted to do.” Georgia O’Keeffe

GEORGIA O’KEEFFE – THE ARTIST

Georgia O’Keeffe (1887 – 1986) was an American artist best know for her paintings of enlarged flowers, New York skyscrapers and New Mexico landscapes. She was one of the leading artist of the 20th century. There’s a Georgia O’Keeffe Museum in Santa Fe in United States.

With $44.4 million she holds the record of the most expensive art work (“Jimson Weed/White Flower No. 1”, 1932. See it here.) sold in auction made by a woman. For comparison the most expensive art work sold in auction by male artist is $450 million (“Salvator Mundi” by Leonardo Da Vinci, 1500).

My portrait painting of her is based on this public domain photograph taken by her husband and manager Alfred Stieglitz in 1918.

GEORGIA O’KEEFFE AND ME

I haven’t seen Georgia O´Keeffe’s paintings YET in person. In 2012 there was a large exhibition of her work in HAM but I lived – and studied my M.A. – in Pori at the time. I wish there will be another chance to see her work in Finland or/and some day I want to make a trip to her museum in Santa Fe.
