Maria Pääkkönen (b. 1988) is a visual artist based in Helsinki, Finland. She works with drawing, installation and durational drawing performance. The concentrated drawing process and the space in which it takes place play a significant part in her work. She explores topics like impermanence, time, memory and landscape through her main material, paper, and its behaviour and fragility. The memory-based drawings construct spaces and atmospheres that hover over the imaginary line between material and immaterial worlds.


 Thank you Paulo Foundation , Finnish Cultural Foundation and Taike for making my work possible this year.
