Eeva Lietonen Emerging artist
Artist's country of origin: Finland
Eeva Lietonen (b. 1987) is Helsinki based artist. She is working in the expanded field of painting; mainly self-made oil on canvas and fresco technique. She is interested in how observations on the characteristics of different materials bring out the matter’s own agency and its aspirations. Her paintings are full yet unstable ensembles. In her art she introduces parts from fictional universes. Mind is capable of travelling elsewhere and it can create places. Lietonen arranges these parts and places into undefined forms moving from structured to disarray by combining, dissolving, covering, exposing and finding alternative solutions. Lietonen studies in the painting department in Finnish Academy of Fine Arts, Helsinki, Finland. Lietonen has attended numerous group exhibitions in Finland and in Germany and has had two solo exhibitions. She has her works in multiple private collections and in collections like The Fund of Päivi and Paavo Lipponen, Kiasma and Finnish Art Society. She has received the Anita Snellman scholarship in 2023.
