Riikka Lenkkeri
Lenkkeri´s bold use of light on her subjects´ faces traces back to Italy and the painting style first created by Caravaggio (1571-1610) and elevates people to the foreground in her paintings. The background is also far from insignificant, having both content and aesthetic meanings. This depth effect not only gives the works a sense of space, but also enables the subtle placement of dramatic elements behind the models.
