My art is about my life, passing moments, being a woman, motherhood.... an unending diary.

I try to give an emotion, to reveal a mood, threat painting as poetry and poetry often inspires me.

A few words, cancellations, cuttings, etchings...

 

“Le opere di Leena Knuuttila hanno il silenzio intimo e la sottile malinconia delle terre finlandesi dove un sole color di tramonto attutisce ogni passione e  sempre domina la scena una quiete lirica che non ha parole...

...siamo nel  raccoglimento della riflessione individuale, nella profondità delle domande finali cui l'artista sa di non poter dare risposta che non sia: POESIA.

...l'arte con la sua forza creativa riporta Leena Knuuttila , ogni giorno, alla gioia di esistere e di indagare lo strano stato di sospensione di ogni vita.”

Annalisa Tessarolo

 

"Leena Knuuttilan töissä on intiimi hiljaisuus ja suomalaisen maiseman hienovarainen malinkonia; laskevan auringon värit tasoittavat hehkua ja antavat tilaa lyyrisen hiljaisuuden hetkelle.... runous puetaa taiteeksi."

Annalisa Tessarolo

 

"seireenien laulu kiirii rantakalliolla.

Mihin veneeni laskisin?

Yllä tutkimattomat taivaiden salat,

alla vesien hiljaiset kuiskaukset.

Nouse veneestä. Pysähdy."

(D. Stratos)
