TH short exhibition text one by one 2021

In her paintings, Tiina Heiska depicts the human condition, our contact with ourselves and existence. Referencing photographic and filmic situations, Heiska’s female figures are mysterious and sometimes troubling. With firm hand, Heiska constructs a dramatic tension. Wide brushstrokes attest to the moment of the painting’s making. Colours are minimal and monochromatic yet intense, they reveal the light in scenes otherwise often pervaded with darkness.
Alice in Wonderland alike – Heiska’s figures, or just the trace of their movements, recall very womanly states. The little girl and the grown-up woman, innocence and sensuality, children’s games and dreams, adults’ fears, desire and fantasies alternate and surprisingly intermingle.
