Hannu Nikander: From one mood to another at Salon Taiteilijaseuran Gallery from January 30th to March 2nd, 2024
Hannu Nikander moves from one mood to another in his new gallery exhibition, featuring acrylic and oil paintings created over the past two years, with the latest ones from this year. Included are a few oil paintings from the 1980s, from the early stages of Nikander’s career.
The focus of the paintings is on animals. The subjects include wild animals found in the Finnish nature or even further away, as well as domestic pets such as the artist’s dog Ilona, who enjoys spending time in the artist’s studio. Alongside animal subjects set in wintry environments, there are also works depicting the relationship and coexistence between humans and animals. In addition to the new animal and human subjects, there are landscape paintings from four decades ago.
During the exhibition, there will be two artist meetings: on Friday, February 23rd from 12pm to 4pm, and on Saturday, February 24th from 10am to 2pm. Free admission. Welcome!
