The driving force of their work is the will to master mediums, tools and materials and the practice can be characterized by curiosity and experimentation. Jemiina Halonen is interested in the codependency of printmaker and matrix: the co-creation of artworks in which the matrix is seen more as an independent entity with an agency instead of just means to an end.
