DICK BENGTSSON

1 June – 26 Aug 2018

Dick Bengtsson (1936–1989) is known as one of Sweden’s most prominent artists. The self-taught painter brought together a range of techniques in his works and encompassed idiosyncratic methods in his works. Bengtsson never gave his personal explanation of the often-surprising details and juxtapositions in his works, but to which the artist nevertheless appears to allude, laying bare the façade of the idyllic Folkhemmet.

ALI MUNSTERHJELM – AXEL HAARTMAN – SANTERI SALOKIVI
14 Sep 2018 – 20 Jan 2019

Ali Munsterhjelm, Axel Haartman and Santeri Salokivi were not just fellow artists, but also leading figures of impressionism and post-impressionism based colour painting in Turku in the early 1900’s. In accordance with their Parisian teachings, the artists would capture the surroundings without forgetting the social aspects of reality. Munsterhjelm specialised in landscapes and urban art, particularly perspectives of the River Aura, while Haartman focused on still lifes, interiors, human portraiture and landscapes. Of the trio, Salokivi’s favourites were portraits, as well as city landscapes.
