Susanna Sääskilahti


I'm artist and curator. I have studied various techniques in Finland and in abroad. I work in Finnish National Gallery as I'm art historian and I take care of Time Based Media Art. Beside history of art I have studied also art education, philosophy and writing. In my art I use mostly aquarelle, acrylics, oil and drawing. Art is my passion and I have inner need to my art at my studio.

My artistic statement


I wish to give strong and deep expression of being in my art. Characteristic to my painting is expression of vulnerability and strength at the same time, certain kind of lightness and heaviness.  Subjects I get from nature, art and from my inner life. I love colors and they mean to me joy, vitality, light and playfulness. Darkness means intensive feelings which anchor us to our life. I love music, poems, literature and art history and I use them often freely as an inspiration to my art works.
