Feelings by the sea

1.10.2022 14.10.2022

Feelings by the sea 1. – 14.10.2022

The theme of the exhibition is simple: the different moods one can feel in the archipelago, by the sea. Cliffs formed round by eons of time, lichen and moss on rock formations, windswept pines, sand and grass, roaring waves and a sudden light peeking through dark clouds, spreading glitter on the water. Ice and snow restraining the wild sea. Humans are barely noticeable – only hints of human presense can be seen here and there; a sailboat far away in the bay, a lighthouse on a cliff. Here you can find perspective in life – or just be as you are.

Jonna Stenman is a watercolor artist with a special liking to the wild and untamed in nature. She is self-learned but has attended several shorter art courses over the years. As an artist Jonna strives to convey awe over natures different moods: the feeling of freedom by the vastness of the sea, the power of the storm and the silence when the wind has died.

Typical is also the willingness to test new concepts in showing her art: a pop-up exhibition for colleagues, an on-line exhibition in social media and a home exhibition when the corona pandemic didn’t allow for open gatherings.

Jonna is born 1971 in Helsinki but now lives in Kauniainen and it was a natural choice to have the exhibition in the local library, in the middle of her home town.
