Hong Liu-Sertti: The Forest of Kalevala

Runeberginkatu 17, 00100 Helsinki
Galleria Kookos

“My paintings in the series exhibition The Forest of Kalevala – Kalevan Metsä are based on traditional Chinese calligraphy and combine image and poem.

 “My paintings in the series exhibition The Forest of Kalevala – Kalevan Metsä are based on traditional Chinese calligraphy and combine image and poem.  

In the Kalevala world, the poem comes from nature and follow the rhythm of nature. The small and fantastic description is set in a large landscape with an ancient and mysterious atmosphere. Nature is a mysterious source of inspiration in which man, as a small individual, interacts strongly with the great universe. The calligraphy marks in the painting are deconstructed, and the viewer can reconstruct the new poem from the old one. 

 

Kalevala is the national epic of Finland and one of the most precious world cultural heritage. Poems of various eras have been passed down from generation to generation among the people for more than two thousand years."
