Colour Pencil Sculptures

Jonna Pohjalainen worked at the Environmental Art workshop of the Open Air Art Museum in Pedvale.  This fine documentation of her work “Colour Pencils” shows us how the work is connected with its surroundings and  how it changes during different weather conditions and times of the day.

The Finnish artist carves the oversized pencils from local aspen trunks, resulting in cool street art that’s also an environmental statement. The ends of each stick were painted with a bold rainbow colour that could be found in any pencil box.

From the Letter of Vinha-Jonna (Jonna Pohjalainen)
“I travelled to work in Pedvale with empty hands. I admired the lovely rural scene and the sunsets of Pedvale. I used local aspen in my work because of its lively forms and beautiful, grey colour  While you sharpen your pencils you can see time passing by. Colours bring joy and happiness in our everyday life. I chose a place of of my work because of the sunsets. You can sit and meditate near my work and look at the sunsets. Without sun there are no colours and life!”
