Reima Nevalainen at Art Berlin 2017
September 14–September 17, 2017
Galerie Forsblom is pleased to participate in Art Berlin 2017 with a selection of works by Reima Nevalainen, who employs a multi-layered collage technique combining paint with materials such as sand and paper, or scraping away the paint to reveal contrasting surfaces underneath. Humans and nature serve as the subject matter of Nevalainen’s paintings – not as conflicting elements, however, for human figures and nature coexist as equals in his compositions.
Station – Berlin, Luckenwalder Straße 4 – 6, 10963 Berlin
September 14: noon–4pm (Previrew), 4pm–8pm (Opening)
September 15–September 16: 11am–7pm
