Henrikka Kivelä: Visit
Henriikka Kivelä believes paintings to be more than just images.
Henriikka Kivelä believes paintings to be more than just images. She understands them to be human acts, and lived moments of expression and emotion. These acts, carried out in space and time are temporally fleeting, but they leave behind a visual record of what occurred.
As an exhibition, Visit should become a place to see something more than just a collection of images. Visit invites the viewer in for a time, to see into themselves, into the artist, and into the connections which exist between the two. The Visit is the interaction that perpetuates forever.
Visit consists mainly of large-scale paintings, created by mostly with ink, acrylic and mixed media.
Finally, to pull the concept together holistically, Henriikka Kivelä will begin working on a piece live in the gallery on opening day, to be finished as the exhibition comes to its final close.
