I was invited by the Kosminen Gallery in Helsinki to exhibit some new works in autumn 2020. I showed paintings, drawings and an animation.

“We are part of nature, and like us, nature is consciousness.It was a unusual winter with no snow, and I was often sitting on the green moss in the forest, whispering with the trees. I wrote and sketched, and finally it became an animation that I call The Spiritual Life of a Spruce. I also show a series of new watercolors, which are a kind of landscapes. I paint nothing you can see, but perhaps experience. To me, there is a clear idea in the picture, and nothing is there by chance. The theosophists have their thought forms, Kandinsky spoke of color as a force that influences the soul and the body, and Hilma af Klint almost anxiously tried to sort out the meaning of her abstract forms and define them in words. I do not think it is possible - it is a language that must be read with the heart.” Gunzi H
