Anna Karoliina


Location: London

I'm a London-based artist, originally from Finland. I create illustrations by painting and drawing on my photographs.
My work is about memory and the relationship between time and memories. By painting on my photographs I want to highlight the way time changes our perception of the past. Fear of death has also got a strong presence. Life as we know it is as thin as ice - the beauty of life is tightly linked to the fragility of our existence and the disappearing nature of things.
