Riikka Alhfors 

January, 2018

Riikka Ahlfors’ new paintings are well seen semi-abstractions that sensuously and quite playfully blend color surfaces and delicate contours with their underlying organic shapes. These at once alien yet deeply familiar forms combine to create mesmerizing three-dimensional ecosystems that are directly based on microscopic photos by photographer-scientist Lennart Nillson of the inside of the human body.
