Maire Keinänen: Thoughts 2022 – paintings at Arabianranta Library February 2 – March 31, 2023 

“Russia invaded Ukraine on February 24th, 2022. The media is flooded with images of brutal warfare and crimes against humanity.   

I have painted these pictures during 2022. During the distressing war news, I turned my attention to nature, which is supposed to create hope and comfort.  

I named the paintings according to a few war dates; the bombing of a maternity hospital in Mariupol, the unveiling of the Bucha massacres, the sinking of the missile cruiser Moskva in the Black Sea, and the surrender of the defenders of Mariupol.”
