Maija Luutonen: Dedicated

Dedicated is the opening exhibition of SIC space and presentation of new works by Maija Luutonen. The exhibition marks also thepublication of Maija Luutonen – Works, the latest installment in the A5 artistbook series by Napabooks.

Through her work, Maija Luutonen explores the space that is brought into existance in the paintings. The extentto which surfaces seem either transparent or covered depend onhow far the viewer is willing to see into the painting.

Part of the works are abstract or very minimalistic.A certain illusion of emptiness presents the viewer with an opportunity to see themselves in the works. The line between the tangible picture and the abstract becomes blurred. Also the presence and the physicality of the painting, in addition to its features, are parts of the work.
