Jukka Lappalaisen teos 'Keskellä'

Jukka Lappalainen: Keskellä
(In the Middle, 2024, watercolour, 70 x 50 cm)


The Helsinki Artists’ Association Art Lending services has a showroom in the classy jugend hotel GLO Hotel Art at Lönnrotinkatu in the heart of Helsinki. The paintings on display can be lent and bought according to the Art Lending terms.




My recent work is comprised of watercolour paintings that I have made in the forests of Herttoniemi and Viikki at a walking distance from my studio. These small urban woods in the middle of Helsinki are astonishingly diverse. I am not a biologist, but I believe this is due to the forests having been left as they are. Interference only occurs if a fallen tree needs to be removed from a footpath or such, otherwise the abundance of flora and fauna is allowed to thrive, and the fallen trees to rest in peace. As a painter, these woods keep on giving me new experiences and inspiration for my work both visually and metaphorically.
