CURRICULUM VITAE - JUHANI JÄRVINEN

Italian taide oli varhainen mielenkiintoni kohde  eikä se ole vieläkään pois suljettu kuvistani. Toinen seikka, joka on vaikuttanut ilmaisuuni, on nuorena, heti opiskeluajan jälkeen tapahtunut vierailu Lontoon British Museumissa. Egyptin taide teki minuun vaikutuksen; elämän ja kuoleman mysteeriin liittyvä tematiikka, pinnankäsittelyn rikkaus sekä materiaalien ja muotojen yksinkertainen, mutta  puhutteleva ilmaisuvoima.

Etelä-Saimaan kriitikko Seppo Paajanen kirjoitti 26.2.2018 Imatran taidemuseon näyttelyarviossa: ”Juhani Järvisen veistoksissa ollaan peruskysymysten äärellä, niiden jopa sakraali tunnelma saa miettimään elämää ja kuolemaa. Järvisellä on todella hyvä taju toteuttaa näkemyksensä minimalistisesti, mutta silti niin, että sisältöä on vaikka muille jakaa. Todella upeita töitä.”

•  •  •

Despite having grown up in a small rural village, I was interested in art history more than to anything else. My first passion was Italian art, which is still reflected in my works. Another factor that has influenced my works is my visit to the British Museum in London, which took place soon after my graduation. Egyptian art made a deep impression on me: the themes related to the mystery of life and death, the rich surface treatment, and the simplistic yet powerful use of materials and forms.

Seppo Paajanen, the critic of Etelä-Saimaa newspaper, wrote on 26 February 2018 in his review of the Imatra Art Museum’s exhibition as follows: “Juhani Järvinen’s sculptures address fundamental questions, as their even sacred atmosphere turns the viewer’s thoughts to life and death.Järvinen is a master at combining a minimalistic style with extremely rich content when realising his ideas. His works are superb.
