Silja Rantanen

Characteristic features of SILJA RANTANEN (born 1955) as an artist are her exceptionally acute powers of observation and deep ability to assimilate things. She is continuously internalising information, visual stimuli and experiences, moods and memories. From there she goes on to analyse this store of information and emotion to find ideas for her new paintings. It is also typical of her that she continues to develop, daring to step off the beaten track and take risks.
