Anna Reivilä

The United Kingdom, London Purdy Hicks Gallery

Anna Reivilä (FI, 1988) is a land artist and photographer living and working in Porvoo, Finland. Reivilä studied at the Aalto University, School of Art and Design in Helsinki. Her works have been part of several international group shows, and in 2018 Purdy Hicks Gallery presented her first solo exhibition. Anna Reivilä creates meditative images revealing the inherent lines and dynamics present within the natural elements she encounters in her native landscape of Finland. Here trees and rocks still carry a strong symbolic presence, inherited from pre-Christian time when such elements were considered sacred. This personifying quality plays an active role in the artist’s process.
