Riikka Ahlfors – 2016

Riikka Ahlfors’ large paintings express motion and interwoven spaces. Her works are like new depictive versions of past decades’ abstract paintings, in which the modernist faith in the future was aestheticized by taut composition and a strict colour mindedness. – Veikko Halmetoja, Art Critic (extract from Press info)
