Pernilla Backman

BIRTH OF VENUS – art exhibition ‪4-30.9.2020‬

‪Opening night Friday 4.9 klo18-00.00‬

Pernilla Backman (b. 1981) is a visual artist from Vöyri, Ostrobotnia.
She graduated Alfa Art Taideoppilaitos in Helsinki 2010 and is therefore celebrating 10 years as a visual artist this year.

This is her third solo exhibition at Roasberg. Previous one’s was: 2017 ”Gypsified” and 2018 ”Like a Prayer”.

One of her strengths as an artist is the ability to beautifully mix realistic and abstract art, but also using different kinds of materials to create texture and layers. Her continous play with style and color adds a richness and depth to her interpretation of an idea or a feeling. She has a very curious and intuitive approach to creating and she channels a lot of emotion into her paintings. The goal is to make you feel something, to make you think.

Her art work showcase the same kind of dualism as she herself represents; blending strength and softness effortlessly. She mastered this organic, and for her very true and genuine, way of creating especially during this year. This exhibition is her most personal so far and most of the paintings have been created during the last 8 months.

”Birth of Venus” is about the birth of a new kind of femininity and embracing one’s unique inner truth and simultaneously accepting it for what it is. Daring to grow into what you are meant to be, strongly and unapologetic-ally.
