Emelie Luostarinen // The nature of the public place // tm•gallery // 3.8.-27.8.2023

The nature of the public place is the basis for the theme of my upcoming exhibition at tm•gallery. I’m looking for a place of delight and peace. In the exhibition, I show paintings on two and three-dimensional surfaces that together create a backdrop for the public place that I, as an artist, am most familiar with, a place that is constantly changing.
