HELENEN PEILIKUVA // Eng. MIRROR IMAGE OF HELENE

Elli Maanpää 2020 // Acrylic portrait painting on vintage mirror

I painted a portrait of the Finnish artist Helene Schjerfbeck to little broken vintage mirror. Broken because we all are little broken but we are still bold and beautiful. This was my art work for the HELENE20 -project organized by Helsinki Hospital.

I talk about more in depth about the HELENE20 -artist support project here. I filmed the painting of this piece. You can see the video in my Instagram here. This painting was exhibited in HELENE20 exhibition in Kulttuurihalli in Helsinki Railwaystation in September 2020. More photographs from the exhibition in my blog here. The painting was sold in Hagelstam & Co auction on 13th of October 2020.
