Laura Hetemäki

Picture of a studio that has canvases on the floor an wall. Sunlight hits the canvases and the wall.

The artwork is exhibited in the Kuva/Tila gallery on the 1st floor of the Mylly building.


in the autumn, when I first think about
what to paint for the Kuvan Kevät exhibition,
I think about stale apple juice
that fills the room with its smell

you serve grandma’s apple juice from a paper cup
one of those blue checkered ones
the juice rests in the depth of the cup,
in its confined shape
I look at you from across the room
through the bottles and dishes filled with liquid
at night, you sweat the apple juice onto the sheets

materials re-arrange

linen, primed with rabbit skin glue, receives the oil paint
paint breathes
and fulfils its task
some of the paint bleeds through the netted fabric
