Exhibition #57 – Maa

Katy Hertell & Jari Huhta



According to Immanuel Kant, beauty is not the quality we see in a peace of art or in nature, but a state of mind.

Katy Hertell’s and Jari Huhta’s exhibition MAA makes us reflect about how we perceive beauty, the spontaneous experience we can have both in art and nature.
Katy Hertell is inspired in her ceramic works by the innocence and beauty she experiences in small children and in nature. The aesthetics in Jari Huhta’s oil paintings touches on our perception of classic beauty. The ‘maa’ that unites the artists in this exhibition is the intimate contact with nature, with the art works and with ourselves. MAA is a place that does not exist, but comes alive through the experience.
