Exhibitions

I’m writing an another entry just about two exhibitions I’ve been to lately.

Last week I went to see Frantisek Kupka’s works in the Finnish National Gallery. As a matter of fact I had almost never heard of him but I had seen some pics of his works and liked them. So on Wednesday after I had given my donation at the local blood bank I went to the art museum to see them myself.

While there I also walked through the basic collection which has some of my fave articles. I’d also tell you that my brother’s ex-wife’s granddad was one the Finnish impressionists but it’s like the game ’almost related to a celeb’ so I’ll just keep quite about that 😉

The deep reds were awesome, this pic doesn’t show them well enough.

One of my faves in the Kupka exhibiton. I’d just stare at this painting for hours.

And this one. So sunny.

Yeah. I really loved most of the paintings there. I used to paint porcelaine when kids were small and as I know how hard it is to make deep reds like the one above makes it even more beautiful.

Today I visited a game exhibition with my friend at the Finnish National library. Our ex-workmate was one of the people who put the exhibition up and he showed us around.

There was all kinds of boardgames starting from the 19th century and it ended to the Nintendo and SuperMario played with a C-cassette thingy. It was fun too.

A historical boardgame based on Finland’s history, a fictional character Ensign Ståhl by our national poet J.L. Runeberg.

Kids playing a boardgame in 1950’s. The colorful back is from the most famous Finnish boardgame of all times called the Star of Africa.

  1. I love colourful art – and sometimes I think it is the colours rather than the subject matter or the style of painting, that attract me to a painting. That surface of colour reclining nude is very beautiful.

  2. Thank you so much for sharing these. I like the red one too (my fav color) and the intricacies of them are just inspiring, thought provoking and brilliant. The board games exhibit would be so much fun to see also. Growing up my siblings and I played a lot of board games!!
