As if you needed any more reasons to take an interest in the work of Finnish graphic powerhouse Kustaa Saksi he’s recently added more skills to his already impressive arsenal, making use of the jacquard loom to move his work into exciting new territory. Kustaa’s latest exhibition, Hypnopompic takes inspiration from the state of sensory confusion that exists between sleep and wakefulness, using the visual delusions experienced during this strange period of consciousness to inspire a set of intricate psychedelic tapestries, busy with distorted flora and fauna. There’s strobing monkeys clambering through trees, some giant technicolour grasshoppers and a particularly ominous looking spider haunting a tapestry of deep reds and blues.
The alpaca and mohair pieces are currently on show at Helsinki’s Korjaamo gallery until September 15.
