June 22nd - September 5th, 2021 Gallery

In Emma Luukkala’s cheerful work of daily clutter, the flow of household objects and people’s relationship to these things is revealed.  Materiality is the core of Luukkala’s work – the three dimensionality of her paintings plays with thick layers of paint and object-like painting surfaces. Repetitive flat and three dimensional juxtapositions give a tangible texture to her work. Luukkala mixes most of her own paints and painting materials to create different kinds of surfaces and textures. Her techniques slide between traditional tempera and oil painting to collage with objects. 

Emma Luukkala (b. 1992) completed her MFA degree at the Academy of Fine Arts of Uniarts Helsinki in 2020 where she also works part-time as a painting material assistant and instructor. Over the past two years she has shown her work in numerous solo and group exhibitions, most recently in the EMERGING 2021 exhibition at Galerie Anhava in Helsinki. 

This exhibition is produced in collaboration with the Art and Cultural Companions. The Art and Cultural Companions selected the artist and learned about the exhibition process in an Art Museum.
