NOBA Nordic Baltic contemporary art platform

The joint exhibition of the printmaker Peegel and the ceramicist Kriisa is a clear example that “doing nothing” in the summer can actually lead to something. For example, a series of pictures and a lot of magnificent ceramics. This is also the reason why the selection is mottled like a quilted blanket in summer.

The authors add: “As befits the beach season, the project lacks a visual manifesto, a social call for help, a deeply social dimension or some other serious side product. Therefore the emphasis has been placed on experiments with composition and materials. All conceptual interpretations are allowed but the main focus of the exhibition is on the two and three dimensional possibilities of printmaking and ceramics.”Andrus Peegel (b 1955) is a printmaker, caricaturist and illustrator. He has studied in the Tartu Art School and the University of Tartu and has improved his skills with practical work. Peegel teaches at the Tartu Art School and is also a member of the Society of Estonian Artists in Toronto. His last personal exhibition in the Tartu Art House was in 2015 (with Tõnis Paberit).Tõnis Kriisa (b 1968) has studied sculpture at the Tartu Art School and ceramics at the Estonian Academy of Arts.
