ABOUT LEA LINTULA
I believe that my art is wiser than I am and comes from a wider place than me.
I am a young Finnish artist and climate activist. My artistic work gives my soul space to play in the physical world and add understanding to connections of life around me.
The internal and external are two sides of the same coin and always interconnected. Material and ethereal worlds can find intersections in my works through colors, shapes and working methods or feels while working. Processing and understanding my own chaotic nature is a large part of my work. I build bridges between the mental and the physical world in order to add understanding and appreciation to the nature. My goal is to find deep connection and love to the Earth and share it with all.
Right now I am working with making of my own ink from the things around me with the support of Taiteen edistämiskeskus grant.
It has been common for me to work with different kind of media such as paintings, photographs, texts, recycled textiles and threads and natural substances. I have found that my way to make art has to sustainable and I am all the time learning my ways and techniques to get there.
I enjoy myself in working with collectives and in the woods and outside.

VESIHIISI ENVIRONMENTAL ART
Environmental art 2018, Rimmilä Finland. Vesihiisi is a traditional mythic creator in Finnish mythologies. In the old stories it has meant naked woman sprite who tempts young men to waters and curse them.
This environmental school project took a place where I have had the fear of this creator my whole childhood. My grand mom used to tell me stories about Vesihiisi to avoid me to go swimming in the lake by myself. As I am still a bit afraid of waters I made this snow and beetroot sculpture to face my fears. And make feeling to the congregate level. The spiral has took inspiration of the Robert Smithson's Spiral Jetty (1970).
