Elämää Suomessa (Life in Finland) exhibition opening gathered a nice crowd at the AMF Gallery on Tuesday evening. The artist Briana Romero was kept occupied throughout the evening in discussions about the artwork and stories behind the pieces. Some of the pieces were born at her home, California after her first longer period in Finland as an exchange student, and some more recently here in Finland.
All of the artwork is inspired by the people, nature and culture within Finland. Romero concentrates mostly on emotion and her artwork rises from her observation of Finland’s emotional atmosphere and cultural attitude towards emotions.
The exhibition continues until February 28th. AMF Gallery is open on weekdays at 9:00-16:00. Free admission.
