"Äiti, tuleeko koulusta huonoa palautetta?"

"Mother, is your child not doing well at school?" is the second part of my Art Thesis. I focused on the individual's process as they develop their identity and a view on feminity. An important part of this painting was reading feminist literature and finding related newspaper articles, which I have used as a material in the final paintings. This work was chosen to be exhibited at Lahti Art Museum as a part of the Union of Finnish Art Associations "Portrait"-show, and I also took part with it in The Art of Basware competition in 2014. The painting is now in the collections of the Helia Fund, and can be found at Haaga-Helia University of Applied Sciences. (Photo: Teemu Heikkinen)
