Silja Puranen


The general theme of my work is contemporary society and the relations between an individual and the society. In my most recent pieces I take a critical view to global issues such as justice, violence and sustainable development.

My works are figurative and narrative. Although the focus of my work is in the critical observation of the phenomenon and injustice in society, one can also find a combination of poetic beauty, subtle but often disturbing strangeness and a special kind of humour. My aim is to create works that can be interpreted in many different levels.
