Steve Salo is an Australian contemporary painter. His "Paintings from Finland" series of expressionist landscape paintings portrays the impact of the evocative Finnish landscape on human emotion. The artworks were created during an artist residency in Hämeenkyrö, Finland.


Daniel Soma is an Australian artist and arts worker. On view is an iteration of his 2016 case study and exhibition, FUTURO!, a collection of works that were in response to a pre-fabricated leisure home designed by Finnish architect, Matti Suuronen.
