488.t1.jpg The artist behind the Moomins or a painter?

Piia Ausman, head of Haus Gallery

How well do we actually know the people behind their famous names? Those who have created art that has become signified in itself, existing a priori, as if it would have been here for us just like this from the very beginning. We equate the artist with their art—thinking of any famous author, we first picture their works, not their face or them as a human.

486.t1.jpg Orest Kormashov: truth cannot be ugly

Järvi Pust, gallerist and art consultant at Haus Gallery

“Moment” – an exhibition of paintings by Orest Kormashov – will be open at the Haus Gallery until February 14. The exhibited works were inspired by a trip to Southern Italy. Orest Kormashov is an artist, for whom an exhibition full of new works is something quite infrequent and exceptional, and because he is also a lecturer and an icon restorer – and in order to be able to focus exclusively on his creative work – he needs to take some time and leave his usual environment for a while. Orest is from an environment that was, quite literally, soaked to the core with art. His parents are/were artists (painter Nikolai Kormashov and ceramist Luule Kormashova). His brother, Andrei (graphic artist and designer), and wife, Jaana (ceramist), are also artists. A moment of happiness such as this, when we have an opportunity to present an experienced person with such a witty and interesting background, must be used in order to have a little talk with him. We started from the beginning, and eventually got to that which was most important – responsibility and creativity.

484.t1.jpg A grand stage for art – BRAFA 2017

Piia Ausman, head of Haus Gallery

Art gives performances – exhibitions, exhibitions. Thousands and thousands of them are opened in the galleries of different cities around the world, reflecting the efforts of artists and curators to create harmony, objections or modern worlds speaking in separate thinking spaces. Exhibitions in important museums focus on a certain artist, epoch or on the overview of a country's artistic values. Private museums demonstrate the preferences of the collectors through their collections, etc. Art is a powerful performance, a vast medium, like a theatrical stage, the size of which is better understood by visiting its art fairs – Grand Galas!

482.t1.jpg Twelve recommendations from the stars

Triinu Soikmets and Järvi Pust, gallerists at the Haus Gallery

Where can you find money, happiness and love? What can you do to make sure that none of it ever ends? Should one look for help from crystals, pour tin, or be the master of one’s own destiny? As we wrote about three New Year’s wishes in the art hall last time, then this time we will be sharing recommendations for the 12 zodiac signs, on how to make the stars to work to your advantage forever – all with the help of art!

480.t1.jpg Three Wishes in the Art Hall

Järvi Pust, gallerist and art consultant at Haus Gallery

The beginning of the year has come to represent a sort of symbolic overlook, where one can stop and take a long look over one’s shoulder or attempt to peek behind the curves of the days and months ahead. It is here that others also stop and take stock of where they are and how they have reached this point. Wishes are made, witchcraft is engaged in, and in recent years the tradition of making New Year’s promises has also begun to rear its head; although, in connection with this, I am reminded here of my desk mate in school, who pledged every New Year to never be late to school, usually managing to keep this promise for about five days. I have always tried to steer clear of such holiday promises because I know that life will interfere with the best of intentions sooner or later, and that is why I prefer to give promises to specific people and on specific topics. Instead, I have made wishes; as doing so seems somewhat more ebullient and less restrictive, especially if you are wishing for liberation from something.

476.t1.jpg The art of being an observer

Piia Ausman, head of Haus Gallery

When we stop and look at something for an extended period of time, time also stops for a moment. We look, and time looks with us. But what about our thoughts? Do our thoughts stop where we do? Does our imagination keep walking on the landscape that we see? No – our thoughts have their own chatty path, and there could be another picture in our imagination. This is how it often is. We are not one with what we are looking at nor do we perceive the moment in which we pause.

475.t1.jpg Artist Jüri Mildeberg and writer Indrek Koff

Triinu Soikmets, gallerist and curator at Haus Gallery

A picture is worth a thousand words. However, sometimes a picture may prefer to remain silent while secretly wishing that there was somebody to see right through it. On a third occasion, thousands of words are frolicking in hundreds of stories, lightheartedly and without concern, albeit somewhat anxiously. Then the pen asks the bristles of the brush – or the other way round – out on a date, and after the initial excitement they both discover that when they draw lines, side by side, new sounds start resonating between them.

471.t1.jpg Heaven & Hell within Us

Piia Ausman, head of Haus Gallery

Heaven and hell have been themes of art for centuries. The chastity and morals of people have always been reflected. Countless images of Biblical topics have been created since the Christian world view started to speak through art. Artists painted the heaven of the blessed or the punishment of the sinners. The plots delved into fantasy and interlaced with reality – the nature, aboriginal force of nature, the ability of the senses to perceive the visible and invisible, revelation and secular doom.

468.t1.jpg Shadows in art and ourselves

Triinu Soikmets, gallerist and curator at Haus Gallery

It was likely the memorial exhibition of Olev Subbi at Tallinn Art Hall, with the author’s bold play with colour and ruthless rupture of shapes, that awakened me. The relationship of this and the other dimension that I was engaged with on the theoretical level, and for which I had found a visual counterpart.

Järvi Pust, gallerist and art consultant at Haus Gallery

A gallerist’s job is filled with meetings, maybe not as many as a cashier, but still. Over a period of days these meetings all have a very different character and level, intensive and changing – people and pictures, pictures and people. I would never have thought I would come to know so many artists personally.
