Katja Syrjä (Mariehamn) graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in Helsinki 2003. “My approach to art is methodical an could begin with the cultivation of a dye plant or by silting soil to prepare colour pigments. In my works, I use natural colours that I prepare from plants and minerals. The foundations for my work lie in the history of the place where a specific colour was found or grew, nature itself, or my own experiences. My images often carry references to art history, art culture and litterature.”
