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 and Finnish Cultural Foundation for making my work possible this year.
