Artist list

Julia Maria Künnap
Bursting full is the moon,
its weight bends the trees.
The waters desire to be turned to wine,
they are so restless.
Kuu on täis lõhkemiseni,
puud painutab looka.
Veed ihkavad vist saada viinaks,
nad on nii rahutud.
from The Full Moon | Täiskuu by Marie Under. Translated from the original Estonian by Ilse Lehiste.

Subtle, silent and seductive, Künnap's work is as familiar as it is foreign. As dark as it is light. Stones drip and curve, fingers leave indelible marks, and blades of grass become transparent and eternal.  A graduate of the Estonian Academy of Arts whose work has already been seen in international exhibitions throughout the world, this is her first solo exhibition in the United States.
