Galerie Forsblom (FI/SE)
Galerie Forsblom brings international established artists to its exhibition spaces in both Helsinki and Stockholm. Today the program includes an emphasis on younger artists.
The imaginative use of acrylic paint in the fine details of still lives and facial portraits is among the signature features of Jussi Goman’s (b. 1980) paintings. The acrylic paint endows his colours with a sense of freshness and buoyancy, while also coating the surface in a smooth plastic sheen. Globs of acrylic chewing gum add dynamism to his seemingly simply motifs, disrupting the two-dimensional surface. In his recent works Goman has also experimented with collage.
