KIRSI NEUVONEN

Elixir of Nature
May 20 – June 9, 2016
Reception: Thursday, May 26, 2016 6-8 PM

In her etchings, Kirsi Neuvonen creates a world that combines strength with delicacy. Building her images from precise, sharply drawn lines, bold, rough-hewn backgrounds, and color combinations that range from subtle variations of grey and black to works punctuated by intense hues, she makes expressive use of the options her medium offers. “I am enthralled by the possibilities that different techniques provide to metal graphics,” she says. Her mastery of those techniques lets her capture many textures: giving hair, leaves, and flowers a vivid presence, effectively using the roughness that the etching process can provide. In addition, her compositions often juxtapose several levels of meaning, using one image to bracket another or turning elements into a motif that moves from the foreground to the background of the piece.

Neuvonen is not simply interested in color, texture, and form: her images take subjects pulled from art history and reinterpret them, resulting in pieces that become part of a larger narrative. “My works make a story that began well before me and will continue after me,” she says.

Kirsi Neuvonen was born in Keuruu, Finland and currently resides and works in Jyvaskyla
