Tiina Lehikoinen

 

Tiina is an eclectic artist who has worked with videos, installations, paintings, drawings and comics. She is also a poet who has published various books of aphorisms and poems. Her background in writing and literary criticism makes her comics pretty unique and literature-oriented, and she uses texts for merely aesthetic reasons. On the other hand, she feels that her comics are more grotesque and rough than her poems. The interest for aphorisms reflects her point of view on fragments, as she thinks they correlate the way we perceive reality and speak of the density of the world. Tiina senses that in this moment in time we are losing our ability to dream and experience freely, and that imagination must be freed again. To achieve this goal she uses surreal juxtapositions in her art, as the best way to deal with the complicated nature of the being.
