Marjatta Tapiola, 2017
An announcement of representation!
We are thrilled to announce the representation of Marjatta Tapiola (b. 1951 in Sysmä, Finland). Marjatta Tapiola established her name in the 1980s as a leading Finnish proponent of neo-expressionism. She received the Pro Finlandia medal in 2004 and the Finnish State Art Prize in 2006. Through her masterful command of line, Tapiola exquisitely captures life’s cruelty and carnal indulgences in her airy paintings. Their gamut of emotions swings from suffering to an intense sensuality that seems ready to burst into a wild dance any second.
Marjatta Tapiola's exhibition opens in the Helsinki gallery on February 15, 2019.
