The personal exhibition of the artist Huupi "Day Palace II" depicts the author’s attempt to decode something that is not dependent on people - the changing of colours in time and something descriptive and imaginary - time itself in which we measure ourselves. The exhibition is a follow-up to the artist's exhibition held at the Pallas Gallery in Tartu in August this year.
Day Palace is a series of paintings that combines colour and architecture, light and shadow. The titles of the works are timestamps that mark the movement of light in time and space. The only truly existing element of the paintings is light and shadow from timezone UTC/GMT -6.
Day Palace does not appeal to realism; the passage of time equals the movement of light, since it is by the movement of light that people (who cannot impact this movement) tell time.
Huupi (Evelin Zolotko) obtained art education at the Tartu Art College Pallas in 2008 and Tartu University (MA) in 2012.
