Sinikka Elfving is a Nordic painter. She was born in the Northern part of Finland close to Arctic Circle. She lives and works in Norway. She is inspired by the strong contraries of the Arctic life, the dark, long and cold Winters and the bright Summers. This is revealed in her works. She uses symbols in her art which are found in nature. In that way her art becomes lyrical, spiritual and expressionistic. The metaphysical aspect of colors has a special place to embrace emotions. She is also fascinated by the phenomena of light that has certain magic in the Arctic Zones during the seasons.
With her art she tries to inspire people to value the spiritual meaning of life, to protect the nature and work for peace. The Earth is our only home that we should be able to share with each others, live and let live in peace and harmony. The nature is the exclusive provider of life on Earth and our survival is depending on it. We should find a turning point in our evolution towards humanity and respect for life.
