Renowned Finnish artist Fred Dervin, currently residing in Beijing, has embraced the Latin term Carpe Diem, meaning "seize the day", as the poignant title for his solo exhibition at the Ici Labas gallery. The showcase features paintings that embody the essence of this timeless phrase.

Dervin's collection, displayed on canvas and paper, exudes a kaleidoscope of colors and a simplistic composition that evokes the unfiltered creativity of a child's artwork. Each piece serves as a visual ode to the beauty found in life's simplest pleasures, urging viewers to appreciate the diverse manifestations of happiness cherished across various cultures and social landscapes — a profound lesson inspired by the artist's grandmother.

Through his art, Dervin endeavors to redirect our gaze toward the elegance of the uncomplicated amid life's intricacies, inviting contemplation on the multifaceted nature of joy and contentment.

The exhibition is set to conclude on Saturday, offering a limited time to seize the enriching experience of Carpe Diem.
