Marja Hakala

Finnish artist Marja Hakala makes site-specific environmental art out in nature — parks, reserves, mountainsides — as well as in gallery spaces and interiors using materials she finds in the environments she chooses. Her repetitive forms impose human order as a sort of meditation on human absence. Just as Thomas Cole and J. M. W. Turner emphasized the puniness of humanity before God and the natural world, Hakala draws out the futility of human endeavors in a 21st century context.
