Kristiina Uusitalo (FI)

Since the start of her career at the turn of the 1980s, Kristiina Uusitalo’s main thematic interests have included the experience and depiction of nature as a stage for human inner life. The forces of nature are at the centre of Uusitalo's work, from experiencing sublime nature to succumbing to the forces of climate change. The large, masterly brushstrokes and vivid, glimmering colours in Uusitalo's paintings alter the scale of the landscape, conveying forces that are greater than the human will.

Kristiina Uusitalo (b. 1959, Sulkava; FI) attended the Finnish Academy of Fine Arts (1978-1982) after which she studied at the Tyler School of Art (Temple University, Philadelphia, USA), from where she received her MFA diploma in 1988. In 2008 Uusitalo was awarded the Finnish State Prize for the Visual Arts.
