Kristiina Uusitalo (FI, b. 1959)

Galleria Heino presents a solo show of new paintings by Kriistina Uusitalo, who has become one of the most prominent Finnish contemporary painters of mid-generation since the start of her career, at the turn of the 1980s. The main theme of her production is experiencing and depicting nature as a stage for human inner life. Her paintings depict Finnish landscape and nature relating to the landscape-painting tradition, opening views into experiences of nature. Uusitalo examines the representation of private and common experience, and re-illustrates it through the eyes of a contemporary person.
