WHAT'S ON

Paul Osipow Paintings, 24.5. – 19.6.2014

EXHIBITION This exhibition by Finnish artist Paul Osipow continues his examination in recent years of classic themes depicting ancient architecture. He has explored the temple ruins at Didyma and Hierapolis in Turkey and at Olympia in Greece. Osipow´s photographs of the walls, columns, decorative motifs, passages and courtyards of the temple ruins form the source material from which he outlines motifs and makes sketches. The final artworks more or less resemble their geneses: they are modified and revised, amplified and reduced.
