The paintings in this exhibition are momentary recollections – important experiences, – layers of identity. – seasons in a human beings plantlike fragility and weakness – traces left by soft pastel.
Paintings reach out beyond words, towards inner longings – where the invisible becomes visible.
Soft pastel technique has held it’s place in Pirkko Mäkelä-Haapalinna’s art nearly twenty years. All works in this exhibition are pastel paintings from 2019-2020
