Anna Kiljunen is a
Finnish based painter who works with various materials and techniques; coinciding with building and destroying. Not to forget the emotional spectrum of humanity, the irony of life, desires and passions, and its converse.
Having studied textiles and then experimenting with many forms of artistic expression on her own, painting turned out to be the most natural and free form of expression. It offered the opportunity to freely combine a variety of elements together without rules. She works predominantly in oil, but also frequently uses acrylic, ink, pastel and pencil. Sculptural elements and diverse surfaces are made of plaster, beeswax, acrylic, wood, thread and collage.
Interest in mysticism, philosophy and science influence her work, but, above all, the main influences come from her life experience. Constantly researching and seeking, what is hidden below the surface.
