The Organic Flax Figures Across, Systems Evoking Roots and Veins Sprawl Across Raija Jokinen’s Organic Flax Figures
Focused on Everyday Feelings, Situations, and Thoughts
Finnish artist Raija Jokinen echoes the natural shapes of botanics and anatomy in her elaborately formed figures. The sculptural works are comprised of sprawling webs that appear like both root and vein systems. With flowers and more dense, fleshy patches emerging from an arm or torso. Each piece fuses the physical and mental, sharing that “approach is focused on everyday feelings, situations, and thoughts we all have.”
The mesh works are created from flax; Jokinen employs a technique similar to that used for handmade paper. That she dyes and molds into branches, twigs, and other organic forms. She then adds floral and structural details through machine stitching, which also strengthens the otherwise fragile material. “With these methods, I am able to create free forms, like cut-outs, and transparent structures. That allow strong shadows on the wall or occupy the space around it.”
Will also have pieces included in the International Mini Textile Exhibition in Bratislava this November. To see more of her works.
