Jorma Puranen at Purdy Hicks Gallery in London

Purdy Hicks Gallery in London is exhibiting a solo show with the works of Helsinki School artist Jorma Puranen .

During a residency at Harewood House in Yorkshire to celebrate the tercentenary of the great landscape designer Capability Brown, Jorma Puranen photographed Harewood's landscape and lake, one of Brown's most significant contributions. Long exposures were taken, mirrored in a painted board prepared by the artist, resulting in painterly, fragmented impressions of nature in which the ground, the brushstroke, and the reflection are inseperably superimposed.

In contrast to this carefully considered and quintessentially English landscape is Puranen's Icy Prospects series. Here the artist demonstrates his deep fascination for and knowledge of the wilderness of the Arctic, creating a relationship between the philosophical concept of the sublime terror of the forces of nature and his own experience of life in these regions.

Opening: Thursday, October 20, 5 – 8 pm
Duration: October 21 – November 16, 2016
Venue: Purdy Hicks Gallery
Address: 25 Thurloe Street, London SW7 2LQ
