Johanna Kestilä is a Helsinki-based artist who works with the Rio11 art community in Jätkäsaari. Kestilä considers herself a physical artist.

“Every time I work, I swing, I climb and I run around,” she says. You could say she shapes paintings like clay. She cuts paintings to pieces to give herself a new perspective on her work and then stitches them together again. Despite the physicality of the process, her works often appear delicate and fragile.

It’s hard, to
get to kindergarten on time
see the terrible grief of your own children
lose a friend
try to understand that love changes
not to have something you need
regard everyone with love

“Everyone experiences their own unique reality. I try to use creative processes as a link between me and other worlds”, Kestilä says.
