'The Raft' : white classical sculpture of humans aboard a sea of flowers

Visual artist Jaana Lönnroos was resident at Wassard Elea during 2022, and we are delighted to share some images of work she produced while there. These artworks were part of an exhibition at Galeria Uusikuva, Kotka, Finland.

Jaana works in photography, painting and mixed media. About her time at Wassard Elea, she told us that she had most appreciated and enjoyed the peace and possibility for solitude which is necessary when one is in creative process, especially the beauty of nature, the ocean, and taking long walks.
