MARKET 202229.4.-1.5.2022 / Liljevalchs konsthall, Stockholm / Booth 15
Galleria Heino presents at Market 2022 a solo show by painter Kristiina Uusitalo (b. 1959). Since the start of her career at the turn of the 1980s, her main themes have included experiencing and depicting 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 received the Finnish State Art Prize in 2008. Her public works include the altar painting in Tainionkoski Church in Imatra (1997) and the mural Valon varassa (Borne by Light, 2013) in the entrance hall of Malmi Hospital. Her works are in all the main Finnish public and private collections.
The exhibition is available to view also on Artsy from April 26th until May 6th.
