Kerttu Saali (b.1994) lives and works in Helsinki. Kerttu emphasizes color and its psychological dimensions in her work. Her main interest in painting is focused on its formal and material dimensions and allusive forms that stem from the perceived world. Kerttu’s work is an ongoing process of coincidence and deliberation: forms and colors may find their places by accident in her paintings.
