Erkki Nampajärvi Drawings


“The exhibition consists of drawings made with ink, coal, and collage on paper. The artworks have mainly been created in nature, in Southwest Finland, where I’ve worked the winter and spring of 2020.

The most fascinating thing about working with paper is its straightforwardness and unforgiveness – everything remains visible. In my working process, I make use of different materials that I find from my surroundings: sand, moss, tree branches. My works are mental landscapes that combine nature experience and imagination.”

Erkki Nampajärvi (b. 1982) graduated from the Arts Academy of Turku in 2010. Nampajärvi has regularly held solo and group exhibitions in Finland and abroad. His works can be found e.g. from the collections of the Helsinki Art Museum, the Turku Art Museum, the Finnish State, and the Turku City Museum.
