BUTTERFLY ~ FLUTTERs BY
- Location: Kaarina, Finland
~ When the heart is full of little birds, there is no space for anger or bitterness. ~
Iida’s style of making art branches out in many ways: she draws, paints, photographs and writes poetry
combining all these elements. The past few years she has concentrated on working more with inks.
But if she is not having fun with pens and brushes, her hands might be shaping something else like
a warm-hearted forest fellow Naava (Usnea) or even building an own love ladder for a creature
called The Universe. Time after time she has ended up exploring happiness or the delicate forms of
existence itself. Precious stories can be found all around, no matter where you are or in which company.
Thinking about art and life in general: creativity flows without force, behind every corner
lies the possibility of something that can make your day.
Iida grew up in Kaskinen, which is not only the smallest town in Finland, but also an island.
She has BA degree in photography. She graduated from Arts Academy at Turku University of
Applied Sciences in 2008. Her artworks have been exhibited in Finland and abroad (for example in The Headquarters of United Nations, NYC/USA). Her works belong to private and public collections such as Albertina Museum in Vienna, Austria. Some of her poems have been published in Italian and English,
but she writes them mainly in Finnish. She has illustrated newspaper articles and magazine, book and album covers.
Artiste Recherche RésidenceVisual arts - Clichy (France) - 15/08/2022
Je suis Vincent artiste peintre et dessinateur (aquarelle, acrylique, huile etc.) de 50 ans. Personne sérieuse et respectueuse je suis à la recherche d’une résidence en France ou dans un pays anglophone. En milieu urbain ou dans des lieux accessibles en train. Je peux en échange donner des cours, participer aux frais, offrir une œuvre… le mieux est en discuter. Le plus important est que le plaisir de l’échange soit partagé.
Take Part On Our Interrupted WalkVisual arts - Vienna (Austria) - 03/08/2022
Artists based in Vienna : Fabian, Tania, Milan Simon. We don't serve trends, we serve our feelings while expressing through films, video installations, performances, concerts, sculptures, collages, drawings, paintings. In collaborations and connections with the artists we are looking for the truth and vibe. We follow our feeling in whatever we do and whoever we meet. We don't know how we feel in other places but we want to feel it and express it through our work. The same feeling we would like to give to the other artists coming to our atelier in Vienna.
Artiste Plasticienne // SérigrapheVisual arts - Lasalle (France) - 28/07/2022
En recherche de résidences de courte durée pour l'instant, l'idée étant de créer/dessiner chez vous mes originaux, pour ensuite en faire des sérigraphies en petit tirage dans mon atelier des Cévennes ! Je cherche aussi des lieux d'exposition.
