    Finns are no strangers to snow. It covers southern Finland on average a hundred days a year. Helsinki artist Jouko Kärkkäinen meditates on the visual properties of this boon. His wave-form ‘Ply Wall Elements’ suggest drifts across a treeless tract. Each hand-cut, formed birch panel is meant to evoke a different time of year and type of snow: freshly fallen; frozen and brightly lit; a wet spring thaw.
