Riikka Sormunen

Riikka Sormunen’s paintings mix soft sensuality with calculated artificiality in scenes that feature characters, plants, and objects striking poses for viewers. Working mainly with watercolor, water mixable oil and tiny brushes, the artist’s work explores contrasting textures, patterns and colors. Sormunen’s painstakingly crafted compositions draw from her excessive daydreaming, focusing on escapist pleasures, solitary meltdowns and performative femininity.
