Leena Mäki-Patola

The overarching theme of my practice over the past ten years has involved the elements of earth, air, blood and water, through which I have explored ecological and ethical questions. The underlying theme in my latest works is luck and misfortune. I find the inspiration for my work from daily life and news itsems which have lodged themselves in my mind. Art for me is one way of taking part in social and political discussion.
