Eyes as Big as Plates Finland, new work!

After a brilliant Camouflage opening week at Kiasma in Helsinki, Riitta and Karo toured around the seaside gems of Kotka, the deep eastern forests and lakes of Pohjois-Karjala (these guys’ neck of the woods), and back to the nettle bushes of Espoo – returning with the suitcase full of new work and new friendships with the finest selection of people.

The biggest and warmest of thank yous to all the wonderful models  for their hospitality, stamina, brilliant sense of humour and enthusiasm to get dressed and soaked in all aspects of the marvellous Finnish mosquito-marinated summer flora.

Here’s a little teaser from the work in progress and great day out with Matti Forrst and the Helsingin Sanomat newspaper, hats off for Mr Nettle!
