Landys Roimola, a Finnish visual artist born in Bogota Kolumbia, amazes with her extensive and diverse production dispite her young age. Especially the artistic visualizations she made for Flow and Provinssi festivals indicate this is an artist with rare, unprejudged and exceptionally brave attitude. The designing of the facade of Imatra ́s new theatre tells about strong professionally committed skills.
The upcoming severe series Wasteland of Kindred Beings playing with the theme of tearing up Finnish loneliness, is a great example of Landys Roimola ́s socially committed art. It ́s commited art both in content and visual basis. New series is a functional continuum that provides the observer with a possibility of active presence or a strong visual experience. The way she used trash as a material grasps the ruthless reality of our time. Reusing and organizing of spurned materials brings out a possibility of hope.
