Through their intricate artworks, Olena Kulishova and Kateryna Harahulia offer a poignant reflection on the power of nature to heal and inspire, especially in times of turmoil.

 

The Artists:

 

Olena Kulishova and Kateryna Harahulia, having fled the conflict in Ukraine, find solace and strength in their art. Their journey as refugees has deepened their appreciation for the tranquility and resilience found in nature, which they express vividly in their paintings. By showcasing forests of Finland alongside the flora of Ukraine, they create a dialogue between two geographies, emphasizing their shared essence of peace and beauty.
