Tiina Heiska : paintings

Tiina HeiskaTiina Heiska is a contemporary Finnish painter. she was born in Finland, 1959. Her work is based on photography, which she uses as a sketch or a draft for the later painted image. Tiina Heiska´s paintings carry a sated and poetic mystique owing to the painterly quality but also to the fact that their inherent narrative is never obvious. Her work is intricately linked to cinematography, but where traditional cinema relies on a continuous flow of events and thereby creates a story with a beginning and an end-ing, Heiska´s work is comprised of several series of stills which form no obvious storyline but rather leaves it to the viewer’s imagination to bridge the gap between image and story.
