Eeva Honkanen (FI)
Finnish artist, Eeva Honkanen, creates large, monochrome, ink drawings inspired by traditional folktales, cartoons, comics and surrealist art, whereby she uses contrast of light to strengthen her compositions. Quoting Honkanen, “if it doesn’t make sense then it’s true” – a description of her artwork that reflects upon the isolated, infinite, and mysterious environment explored within her works. In her drawings, she combines dramatic, dreamlike compositions with narrated stories, implementing real elements such as machines, humans, and animals, which are then transformed into multiple, grotesque, strange figures. Through her work, she invites the viewer to explore the unknown and gives space for exploration of one’s own mental landscape.
