Petra Kallio

MA Artist, Printmaker, Art Educator

I work with several methods in art, mostly in printmaking. I’ve become attached to printmaking because it is a medium with such unique technical qualities. During the last years I have specialized on woodcut, engraving, mezzotints and drypoint, finding new ways to apply these techniques in installations and space in addition to the traditional ways to use printmaking.

I find phenomenons in life interesting, and my will is to capture issues with small layers of moments in my work, as I travel through time. My new work around the theme of fatality and momentariness, is carried out with different woodworking techniques, woodcuts and wood engravings.
