The “Tuulitehtaat” (Wind Factory in english) exhibition at Gallery Art FRIDA in Helsinki (17.8-5.9.2013, Korkeavuorenkatu 25, Helsinki) features the work of Zamuel Hube, the Helsinki based painter from Pori. Zamuel is a lover and inventor of Ship-houses that produce wind with its different movements of the sails. Last monday, after visiting FRIDA Gallery, I had the opportunity to meet Zamuel Hube in his small and cute studio. We talked about many things but what I would like to underline is his way of imagining and acting. “When you have something new, you get excited. And I start immediately to paint” he said. “The excitement of the first idea gives energy and life to the painting. As a viewer, you can feel this moment”. I totally agree about his words, I got very surprised when I saw the wind inventors, the mix of colors of the skies and seas… I mean, I can tell you that the whole painting is a fantasy story full of wind and movement.
Zamuel Hube’s paintings open your mind to the imagination. In his last exhibition, Tuulitehtaat, Zamuel adds small texts to his artworks as a help to understand better the function of the inventions and to approach the audience to the meaning of the artwork. hahahhaha! I laugh a lot when I heard this, because when you are reading the text you get block and you get more surprised about the painting instead of understanding better the whole story. hahahaha! Crazy and beautiful moment. Hyvää Zamuel, Nice to meet you!
