Mirimari Väyrynen (b. 1976)

Mirimari Väyrynen demolishes and rebuilds Landscape. She works mainly with painting. It is a thinking and research tool for her. Furthermore she understands painting not only as a two dimensional picture, but also related closely to space and different materials and objects.

As a content of her artistic praxis she approaches landscape through the position of human being in relationship with the nature and the world. Landscape is a ubiquitous social-, time-, and sensescape where perception and interaction with the world occur.

She is interested in how the time, culture and identity attach in pictorial landscape tradition. And nevertheless how landscape and its’ representations embody and also reveal the phenomenon and values of each era.

Mirimari Väyrynen works and lives in Helsinki and Málaga.
