Helmi Nieminen b.1997, FI

I’m a visual artist currently based in Helsinki. My works can be described as autobiographical and playful. Through drawing and ceramics I react and reflect on daily observations and feelings which are blended with my own imagination. The animals and other creatures that recur in my work are critical and have their own rules. They help me to question societal norms and navigate through this world. Recurring themes in my work are confusion, love, longing, fear and growing up. My works are often results of an intuitive working process. Bright colors and different textures are an essential part of my practice. Through my installations I construct alternative realities and invite you to a space of imagination.
