is a painter based out of Helsinki, Finland. Her work was first featured on EK in January 2010
and we are happy to show you her new work, even more beautifully haunting! "Dissolving Girl", "Silk Ribbons and Bows", and "The Pond" are just a few of her more recent series that depict characters in dreamy, vague states of being, leaving the viewer to fill in the narrative gaps. There is a sense of voyeurism in her work, as it is difficult to discern whether or not the subject is watching or being watched. Heiska is classically trained and she recently exhibited new works in a solo exhibition at Galerie Leger

"Identity loss and re-development is explored through the manipulation of surface texture and paint handling. In the effort to convey the psychological struggle in dealing with self-evaluation and mass appeal, my work is both social exposition and autobiographical. Through standing-in for the commercial character my identity is distanced but also clearer, by proxy." -Theresa Pfarr
