Heidi Lampenius

Heidi Lampenius’ paintings play with the perception of the abstract and figurative. She treats her subjects – pictorial subjects from art history or landscapes – by disrupting traditions, by making visible signs out of invisible reality – out of vibrations, sound and light waves. Lampenius works by painting, but research and litterature play a crucial part in the working process as well. The poetic, delicate yet powerful works are created with inks and acrylics on ungrounded canvas. Lampenius works by soaking, washing and removing paint, which gives her paintings their inherent ethereal quality. 

Heidi Lampenius (b. 1977) graduated from the Finnish Academy of Fine Arts in 2011. Her most recent solo exhibition at Helsinki Contemporary was Wavelengths in 2019. She has also exhibited at Galleria Huuto in 2015 and Sinne in 2014. She has participated in numerous group exhibitions in Finland and internationally, e.g. in Sweden, Italy, Singapore, Iceland and Greece. Lampenius’ wors are represented in such public collections as Museum of Contemporary Art Kiasma, EMMA Espoo Museum of Modern Art, Aine Art Museum, Jenny and Antti Wihuri Foundation’s Collection and the Swedish Region Gävleborg’s public art collection.
