Sanna Myrttinen

Artist Statement

Born in Finland, Sanna Myrttinen has always felt a close relation to nature, which also provides her with the main source of her artistic creativity and inspiration around her topics such as her longings, tranquility, human foundations and nature itself. To retreat into a world of tranquility far off from the ways of urbanization and the claws of the high-tech consumer world has become her path to an active form of meditation, which the artist reflects in her working process. The way she captures this in her paintings keep fascinating her audience: no matter whether one looks at her dreamily blurred landscapes or simplified forms with emphasizing outlines, they all speak a language which bridges Asian thinking and her own cultural heritage. Not least because of this blend of Eastern and Western thought, her artistic expression is impressive, forceful and full of tension. She considers herself part of the Enigmatic Realism movement.

Sanna Myrttinen ha sempre sentito stretto il rapporto con la natura, che le fornisce anche la principale fonte e ispirazione alla sua creatività artistica. Ha scelto di indirizzare il suo cammino verso una forma attiva di meditazione ritirandosi in un mondo di tranquillità lontano dall’urbanizzazione e dal mondo high-tech, che l'artista riflette nel suo processo di lavorazione. Questo è percepibile nelle sue opere ed è quello che affascina il suo pubblico. Le sue opere sono paesaggi sfocati e sognanti o forme semplificate da semplici contorni, opere che fanno da ponte tra il pensiero orientale taoista asiatico e la sua eredità culturale. Si considera parte del movimento Realismo Enigmatico.
L’artista lavora anche a stretto contatto con una associazione ambientalista tedesca http://www.fansfornature.org/ , così che il 15% del ricavato della sua arte va per salvare gli oranghi nel Borneo.
