Jesse Avdeikov

The Leftovers

The Leftovers is Avdeikov’s first project focused on abstraction, color and textures. The exhibition consists of a series of textile paintings made with hand embroidery and appliqué. The works are made out of recycled and leftover materials from his other projects. Jesse uses old clothes, textiles and sometimes other found objects such as pieces of old broken radio.

In his recent works he has been closely studying the relation of textile art and painting. Applying his knowledge and abilities as a painter to do embroidery and appliqué. That is why he refers to his textile works as “thread paintings”.

Jesse Avdeikov (b. 1986) earned his Master of Fine Arts degree from the Academy of Fine Arts of the University of the Arts Helsinki in June 2020. The exhibition is supported by Arts Promotion Centre Finland (Taike).

Gala Jane

Fine, thanks

Gala Jane is a mixed-media artist exploring mental health through the use of text, found objects, textiles. Fine, thanks explores Gala’s personal journey in the days, weeks and years after the Lismore floods of 2022 hit, destroying her studio and devastating a community.

The exhibition delves into the aftermath of this natural disaster and shedding light on the challenges faced once the media and government pack up, leaving a town and individuals to figure it out.

Using voice recordings from this time with vibrant colours, found objects and tufted rugs she begins to break down her resilient facade. After nearly two years in the making these works have become part of Gala’s healing journey, culminating in a poignant and raw portrayal of her experience.
