Anne Koskinen

In Need of a Guardian
7 Sep – 1 Oct 2017

ANNE KOSKINEN is a versatile artist mastering several techniques, from marble or stone sculptures to detailed watercolours, drawings, bronzes and installations. Drawing on the German tradition of image studies, as well as with strong personal reflection, Koskinen explores the possibilities associated with the process of an image coming into being – the living process in which an image and its meaning are created. How little is needed for an image captured in stone and made possible by it to emerge? When does an image take shape? When is it necessary to stop?  

Anne Koskinen (b. 1969, Helsinki) has studied at the Karlsruhe Academy of Fine Arts and the University of Freiburg in Germany, and at the University of Art and Design Helsinki and the University of Helsinki In Finland. In recent years, her works have been on show in solo and group exhibitions at venues including Galerie Werner Klein in Cologne, the Serlachius Museum Gösta in Mänttä, Kunsthalle Helsinki, Nordiska Akvarellmuseet in Skärhamn, and Royal British Society of Sculptors Galleries in London. In addition to private collections, she has work in prestigious public collections such as The Sander Collection, Germany; Malmö Art Museum, Malmö; European Parliament’s Collection, Brussels; EMMA Espoo Museum of Modern Art; and the The Finnish State Art Collection.
