Osmo Rauhala: The Tree of Life

Osmo Rauhala: The Tree of Life
HELSINKI  •  Museum of Contemporary Art Kiasma  •  Ongoing

Kiasma presents a solo exhibition of new work by Osmo Rauhala, an artist dividing his time between Siuro, Finland, and New York. This exhibition features three new series of paintings.

Is everything just chance, or is life governed by some structure or memory? The efforts of humanity to understand reality are a permanent source of inspiration in the art of Osmo Rauhala. This exhibition features three new series of paintings: Game Theory, The Book of Life and Memory. The common theme in all three is the relationship between language, image and nature. The works remind us that life’s memory remains a mystery to us. What is the ultimate reason for our actions?

Osmo Rauhala uses art to explore our ability to understand the reality we live in. In his paintings, Rauhala complements animal and plant symbolism with a pure world of abstract signs, pointing to the way we conceptualise and organise the things we see.
