STILL LIFE

From 2011, Liisa Karintaus explored the flowers still-life genre. Avoiding the precise replica of an original, she assimilated several copies in order to reproduce a composed recitation.
Powerful metaphor of the time passing, of the ephemeral, a time capture of a motionless form foreseeing its unavoidable degradation. The textures of these paintings, similar to the method used in her portraits, sustain the movement illusion, those of erosion rather than the lifelessness cherished by the 16th century painters. The artist’s gestures are easily perceptible, underlying once again that every image are constructed. Thus, it is an entropic consideration of the matter, entropy as information incompleteness, degeneration and transformation from which Liisa Karintaus seeks a shaded sense of beauty.

Dès 2011, Liisa Karintaus s’est appropriée le motif de la nature morte de fleurs. Sans en représenter la copie précise d’un original, l’artiste assimile de nombreuses reproductions pour en restituer un substrat recomposé. Métaphore puissante du temps qui passe, de l’éphémère, la capture d’une forme immobile qui préfigure son inévitable dégradation. La texture des peintures de l’artiste, similaires aux techniques décrites plus haut pour ses portraits, tient l’illusion du mouvement, celui d’une érosion plutôt que l’inanimation chère aux peintres du 16e siècle. Les gestes de l’artiste nous sont immédiatement repérables, sous-tendant une nouvelle fois que toute image est construite. C’est alors une considération entropique de la matière, entropie comme incomplétude de l’information, dégénérescence et transformation où Liisa Karintaus poursuit une beauté inattendu.

Gauthier Lesturgie

Liisa Karintaus (Muurola, 1977) espone nella galleria bergamasca alcuni fra i lavori dell’ultimo biennio. La sua ricerca attuale si concentra su un classico della pittura nordeuropea secentesca, la natura morta di soggetti floreali, e sulla sua reinterpretazione concettuale, mediata dallo sguardo contemporaneo. Per mezzo di tecniche che vanno dall’acrilico e olio su tela al carboncino, pastello e gesso su carta, l’immagine rappresentata si svincola dal dettaglio della linea definita, dalla precisione del disegno, non necessari per il fruitore del XXI secolo. La memoria scorre e la forma si perde, si disgrega nello spazio circostante, attraverso la degradazione del tempo, effimero ed evanescente. L’eco romantica del fiore si sfalda con sottile violenza, l’ombra si impone e rivaleggia col colore, superando la concezione della copia analitica di un originale. E presente è la traccia della delicatezza e dell’entropia, la ricerca della forma completa è vinta dal ricordo.

Korundi features Karintaus artworks

FTimes Report by Antti Karjala, July 27

This month, the Korundi House of Culture Rovaniemi has been featuring selected artworks of the local artist Liisa Karintaus.
Karintaus is committed to paintings, animations, drawings and environment-based art. Four paintings are on display. The individual art works form together an installation. “The artworks on display belong to the artist’s Still Life series – the latest, created during last winter,” told Karintaus.

According to the artist, “the Still Life series brings, through art historic reference, an early setting and framework to the present day.”Behind the Still Life series has been my keen interest in Renaissance era paintings that I have seen in the last three years during my visits in Italy.”

“The reference point in these paintings has been the art works of Flemish artist Joachim Beuckelaer on elaborate, plentiful display of kitchen settings with fruits and birds.” The artist pointed out that her approach is somewhat modernized and from the modern standpoint: “I have studied the subject from my own settings and point of view, with present day experience and tools.”
On selection of the displayed works, the artist said: “These particular artworks were selected on the basis that I think they fit well to the display area.”

The paintings on display are of birds visualised in different colours. The paintings have strong core resemblance to each other, although a different feel can be sensed from the individual paintings. “The colours are the voice of the painting and present its light, in the same way as music, colours can create and cross physical spaces.”

The artist also revealed that the same paintings might be seen in Southern Finland after the Korundi exhibition. “The series is part of my current project and will most likely be displayed next time in the spring of 2016 in Mältinranta, Tampere.”
