Galleri Thomassen is pleased to present Fragrance, Tuula Lehtinen´s fifth solo show at the gallery.
Fog, landscapes, lace, shoes, and flowers are recurring motifs in Tuula Lehtinen´s art, exploring themes of femininity, sensuality, indulgence, nature, and power. Her work can be placed in the tradition of feminist art, which does not conform to prevailing standards of good taste. As such, she exploits concepts that for a long time were banned from contemporary art, such as the frivolous and the decorative. In Fragrance Tuula Lehtinen is as always challenging the traditional separation between the intellectual realm of art and culture and the domain of daily life.
