Fanny Tavastila is a painter (b. 1977), who lives and works in Helsinki. Tavastila’s work draws upon a nuanced spectrum of emotions. She builds her paintings slowly, layer upon layer: they are an intuitive and multifaceted examination of the relationship between the visible and the hidden, the everyday and elegiac, the figurative and abstract. With an innate and lyrical sense of colour, rhythm, texture and composition, her paintings capture the essence  of that which is not easily expressed in words.

“Nature has always been very important to me, and I find the everlasting balance between the structured and the organic truly interesting to study. Ever since I was a child, I have found the Winter Garden to be a magical place, a place to travel in time, in fantasy and in the ever changing life of plants and nature within a certain space. In my new silk screen prints I Vinterträdgården (In the Winter Garden) I explore the relations between light and shadow, the built and the organic, the inner and the outer room, and how these all traverse and become one. I am fascinated by colours, and each of the works are unique, with different colour combinations within the same theme.”
