Leena Fredriksson


"In my paintings, I reflect on my memories, experiences, and feelings from my trips to the nature of the archipelago that I love. The dialogue between summer and winter makes the harsh landscape of the archipelago so fascinating: darkness and light, storm and tranquility, colours and black-and-white."

Continuous longing for the Finnish archipelago emanates from Leena’s abstract paintings: harsh nature and the movement and silence of the sea are the source of inspiration for her paintings.

”I grew up in the Finnish archipelago and, I am struck by the beauty of nature — the landscapes and animals — that surrounded me.”
