Galleria Heino will present works by the following artists:


I am primarily a painter, although photographs have always played a major role in my works. My previous series of paintings were based on pre-existing photographs. Currently, I first build a scale model of the subject of the painting, I then photograph it and I finally duplicate the photograph by painting it on canvas.

My paintings are a reflection of society. I frequently depict events conveyed in the news: terrorism, school shootings, natural disasters and other tragedies. My point of view is not journalistic; instead I condense news events into distanced archetypes of sorts during a process consisting of several phases. At the same time, events in our own era become part of the history of painting and of the cycle of historical events.

My most recent paintings deal with the economy and power through everyday, but charged images. The scale model on which the painting is based is a simplified model of reality in the same way as economic models and theories are an attempt to describe the logic of the economy. In most cases the models, and consequently my paintings too are incomplete: ATMs lack both a keyboard and a cash dispenser and the safe is in the painting and not behind it. In a gun shop, on the other hand, the guns have been set out so that insurgents and terrorists find their guns on the left and soldiers on the right.
