//COWEN // MINKKINEN // YAMAMOTO //
The exhibition presents work by 3 renowned artists who live and work on 3 different continents. Jeff Cowen is recognised by his painterly and sculptural mural-sized compositions. Arno Rafael Minkkinen´s devotion is to self-portraits: unmanipulated images of the human figure in the natural and urban landscape. Yamamoto Masao is known for his small photographs, some times grouped randomly on the wall as visual Haiku poems. Their tools are a camera, film, paper and chemistry, and in their darkroom it all comes together, like magic.
