Ola Kolehmainen (*1964), one of the most prominent artists of the “Finnish School,” graduated in 1999 from the University of Art and Design in Helsinki (TaiK). His work centers on the exploration of contemporary architecture. Concentrating on the basic structure of architectural façades and interiors, and the strict geometrical order of serial forms, Kolehmainen creates nearly abstract images whose aesthetics are rooted in Minimalism. Disturbing details, called “visual noise” by the photographer, are thereby eliminated. Yet there always appear to be elements that undermine the concept of a clear, orderly structure, such as tree branches covering a section of a façade or mirrored façades reflecting a fragmented view of the world outside.
This book is a collection of Kolehmainen’s previously unpublished works, which were created over the past two years.
