Solo Exhibition Gallery Plyssen

Saara Herne

Art


I chose to have my first solo exhibition at this quirky place, Udstillingscenter Plyssen,  filled with old model airplanes, local history and local artists. I have always been very self-conscious about my art, shy, and not confident in showing my works for others – but the past few years I have been working a lot on my techniques and spend almost all my spare time (as much as I can have with three kids) painting or drawing. So if I wanted it to be more that just a hobby, I need to “put myself out there” and there were two available rooms – which was also a part of my decision: it had to be NOW while I had the momentum. The works at this exhibition were based on nature and what happens to the one around us - which we are part of. The title of the exhibition was "Jorden er Giftig” (The Earth is Toxic) and refers to the environmental issues, climate change, plastic in the oceans, etc. So it was not to be super political, it is just a matter that is very close to me. For me it is important to take care of the planet so we have a good one to pass on to our children. The titles were all in Finnish, since I have always loved coming up there and been inspired and caught by the beautiful, untouched nature there is -  and lately there has also been more and more animalistic motifs in my paintings.
