Anna Tuori at Suzanne Tarasieve

Anna Tuori’s second solo show at Galerie Suzanne Tarasieve in Paris runs from 14 March to 2 May 2020. The Never Seen a Bag Exploding exhibition presents her new drawings and paintings, including the Walkers series.

“The first word that comes to mind when I look at the works of Anna Tuori is restless. There are restless ‘walkers’ populating her paintings, ready to go but also wanting to stay.

Santeri Tuori at Purdy Hicks

The Purdy Hicks Gallery in London is showing a solo exhibition of photographer Santeri Tuori from 28 February to 28 March 2020. For the new Water Lilies series, Tuori photographed ponds over a period of time; the works are layered images on top of each other taken from the same spot at different times. As a result, the image becomes abstracted – no longer a specific record of the original pond and water lilies photographed by Tuori, but more the essence and memory of the place.
