Elina Salminen (Finland)
Elina Salminen carries the question of perception as a watermark on the surfaces she moves into. Her work oscillates between installation in situ and paintings as objects. Through a subtle play of surfaces, she creates works that have to be approached through the spectre of time and space. Through a play of sometimes barely noticeable shades of colour, screens, revelations and erasures, it takes the eye some time to recognise what it sees and what it comprehends… An intelligence of measure and of minimal form, objects/surfaces found or rather arranged: all of Elina Salminen’s work is dis-covered both literally and figuratively.
