Ruudu Rahumaru's exhibition "Earth's Embrace and the Song of Fire"

On Thursday, 15 February at 17 photo artist Ruudu Rahumaru will open her personal exhibition "Earth's Embrace and the Song of Fire" in the small gallery of the Tartu Art House.

Ruudu Rahumaru's photographic paintings that are created in her own author technique mix together fairy tales from nature and psychedelic patterns. The works were created on photographic journeys through spiritual and natural landscapes. The artist has tried to capture universal sources of energy but has also found her own spiritual reflections. The empowering pattern mandalas enable the audience to find a path to their own spiritual centre.

Ruudu Rahumaru explains: "The creation of this exhibition has been a very therapeutic process. The preliminary impulse was my desire to understand the power that emanates as a spiral underneath my heart. I followed this magical path that takes us from one point to another by moving energies and materializing ideas and started mapping the sources of my own power. Our spiritual strength is imperceivable but I managed to find some patterns that contained possibilities of recharging oneself."

Ruudu Rahumaru (b 1991) graduated in 2015 from the photography department of the Tartu Art College. Throughout the years she has been active in the local street art scene. Rahumaru’s dreamlike photos have been shown in over ten personal exhibitions in spaces that usually don't contain art. The first version of the present project was previously exhibited in the Võru Town Gallery in August 2017.

The exhibition will remain open until 11 March.

Tartu Art House (Vanemuise 26, Tartu, Estonia) is open Wed-Mon 12–18. Exhibitions are free of charge.

The exhibitions of the Tartu Art House are supported by the Tartu Town Government and the Cultural Capital of Estonia.
