  • Catalogue Essay

    Kolehmainen’s passion for Minimalism led him to explore the subject of grids through the medium of photography. The resulting large-format works are meticulous and isolate the grid-like facades from their particular context. While Kolehmainen works mainly with architecture, he is not concerned with the function and scale of the actual buildings. He also is not interested in creating narratives. The transformation of three-dimensional forms into two-dimensional surfaces is what excites him.
