GEOMETRY OF CONCIOUSNESS
Kadi Tombak has brought together calligraphy and geometry in her art form. Her works are inspired by Hindu and Buddhist traditional wisdom, holy songs, and sacred architecture, presented in a contemporary visual interpretation. She writes texts in a circular movement on paper around an architectural symbol.
The aesthetics of René Kari’s work are unique. The artist’s pure, exquisite painting volumes and coloured surfaces surrounded by contours model subtle spaces of experience.
CAPITAL OF HAPPINESS
Arno Arrak's watercolor paintings made in his personal technique blend colors and the horizon, are meditative and look into the depths of the world, almost musical, letting you guess the fusion of nature's sounds.
ESTONIAN WATERCOLOURISTS' ASSOCIATION
MY IMPORTANT WORLD
Painted in the 1990s, the works depict a rare subject in the art of its time – a toddler with his mother and other family members, and the surrounding environment, which is sometimes transformed into abstract patches of colour.
LAURENTSIUS - LAURI SILLAK
S - SMALL SIZE
Laurentsius has said that he likes to paint in the system L, M, S – large, medium, and small – to denote an internal game that determines both the format of the forthcoming work and its artistic and substantive approach. When measuring the work of Laurentius in this format-based way, one should also mention his giant XL and his miniature XS, from which the audience that knows him recalls in a maximized close-up view, stylishly content-anarchic portraits, small personified fruits, or natural miniatures in baroque giant frames.
HAUS GALLERY CONTINUES WITH THE EXHIBITION SERIES - COLLECTORS
EXTRAVAGANZA: ART FROM JOSE COROMINASE'S PRIVATE COLLECTION - CONTEMPORARY ART CLASSICS
For the most part, art collectors are individuals who remain in the shadows of art and do not want to reveal themselves. However, there are also philanthropists who are more generous in promoting art, organising exhibition series from their own collection, or creating private museums that attract the attention of the audience and also bring their own personality into the public interest.
WORKS FROM TWO PRIVATE COLLECTIONS
ESTONIAN PAINTING CLASSICS 1900-1945
Estonian nature, cities and people
Haus Gallery dedicates the month of February to the Republic of Estonia and to Estonian art classics created in the early years of the Republic. The gallery also more broadly brings into sharp and appreciative focus the role of private collectors who value our artistic heritage and contribute to its preservation, often modestly deeming their own personalities unworthy of notice. Therefore, let the names of the owners/collectors of the works in this exhibition also remain unmentioned here. We are talking about the art collector as someone who has played a major role in history and whose private collections have given birth to some of the world’s most prestigious art museums.
Estonian Female Artist and Nature
Exuberance - a collection of exhilaratingly abundant and energetic feelings. This is how the word could be explained and how the exhibition in the Haus Gallery could be characterized, featuring 9 well-known Estonian female artists who, by painting nature, have intertwined today's experience with the primordial. Nature is the main theme of the exhibition works, but here it is more of a metaphor that marks the feminine side of the world more broadly - the quiet, glowing tones of warmth and protection, but also the elemental and indeterminacy flowing in a powerfully overflowing emotional color.
Only nine large-format works from Urmas Viik's new graphic art collection create a compellingly mystical atmosphere in Haus Galeri's velvet-black exhibition hall. The strange figures of the artist's self-mythological tribal foxes on a white paper surface intertwine animal and man, who meet on the common existential ground created by a primitive but subtle intellectual feeling - in a space where emotions of colors are dictated by the rhythms that arise in the viewer themselves, which are attractively provoked by the poses, glances and inner tensions of the tribal foxes.
