Maaria Märkälä is a Finnish painter. She lives in Espoo and works in Helsinki. Märkälä's work is represented in several public and private collections in Finland and abroad.

Veikko Halmetoja, art critic and curator, writes about Märkälä's work:

"The structure of Märkälä's paintings takes on a life of its own. The luscious surface is like the hands of the fiercest expressionists. Each crevice and peak stands out from the painting, building its own story on the surface of the colors. The echoes of abstract expressionism are very powerful and enjoyable. The paintings display movement, in parts, the limits of that movement. "Märkälä is skilful in taking the viewer from the bigger issues to the most minute level. Ultimately, the viewers may find themselves staring incessantly at the passionately gushing surface.

Märkälä is branching out into a new territory with a series of photographs. On the photographs' industrial landscapes, there are paint strokes, scribbles, drawings and scratches. "" These works can be interpreted as commentary on the relationship between modernist painting and photography. The history and development of modernist painting has paralleled the development of photography, and their paths have thus been several times through the years. Märkälä's painting on photographs is a critical commentary on the power of photography, an outcry for the power of painting.

This applies to the whole exhibition: strokes of paint in nuances and in mass, luscious expressive surges of color. "

If you are not able to visit the gallery during the opening, the best possible defense for painting is to express its expressiveness in a way that wells from the whole-hearted surrendering to the act of painting." hours

Maaria Märkälä is a Finnish painter. She lives in Espoo and works in Helsinki. Her art can be found in various public and private collections in Finland and abroad.

Veikko Halmetoja, art critic and curator, on Märkälä's work:

"The structure of Märkälä's paintings leads a life of its own. The lush relief seems like the craft of the wildest impressionists. Each column, each summit stands out from the painting and creates its own story on the surface of the colors. The echoes of Abstract Expressionism are powerful and lovely. The pictures show movement and, in part, the limits of this movement. Märkälä skilfully draws the observer from the big questions to the level of the smallest. In the end, the viewer may catch the relentless gaze on the passionately bubbling surfaces.

Märkälä enters new territory with this series of photographs that she himself says has "destroyed" her. In the photographs of industrial landscapes one finds color strokes, scribbles, paintings and scratches. The original image is usually barely recognizable and there is not necessarily any relationship between the content of the photo and the added elements. These works can be understood as a commentary on the relationship between Modernist painting and photography. The history and development of modernist painting ran parallel to the development of photography and their paths have crossed over the years several times. Märkäläs paintings on photographs are critical comments on the power of photography and an outcry for the power of painting.

This applies to the entire exhibition: color strokes in various nuances and masses, rich and expressive color effects. The best defense of painting is to show its expressive power, which can only come from a total devotion to painting. "
