Olli Piippo’s solo exhibition Eight Notes on Oceanic Feeling will be held in Helsinki Contemporary on 4–27 May.

A series of large, dark-coloured paintings bearing the name of the exhibition Eight Notes on Oceanic Feeling have been made with graphite on a black background.
“Rendered through the painting process, Oceanic Feeling is a moving state, a feeling that a wave is rolling over you, or merging into the background. In the same way the painting is either losing its form or the form is just rising to the surface.”
