ON THE STARTING LINE – Series
Paintings: Elli Maanpää 2012/2013
On The Starting Line is series of paintings done with acrylic, oil and ink that I did during live model sessions in my University’s painting class. Our painting professor was wonderful visual artist Paavo Paunu. The name On The Starting Line has a multidimensional meaning: from the sporty poses to the fact that after the resent graduation I am in a starting line of my own artistic life. Sports have also always played an important part in my own life and there is lot of crossroads between art and sport. These work will be exhibited in S-Galleria in Helsinki in Autumn 2014.
