"My paintings are figurative and often depict everyday life. I am interested in portraying realistic people in sketchy, almost abstract settings, making use of bold and expressive brushwork and want to utilize the phenomenon of chance. I strive to turn my personal experience into something others can relate to as well. I am interested in fleeting moments and everyday situations that are familiar to us all. I work primarily on acrylic glass sheets as a base material for my oil paintings. I use to paint both sides of sheet, which makes the colours glow.”

Erika Adamsson is a painter. After graduating from Turun Piirustuskoulu (‘Turku Art School’) in 1996, she has held solo exhibitions and participated in several group exhibitions. In Helsinki, she has held a solo exhibition in the gallery Kluuvi (Helsinki Art Museum) (2014), Huuto (in 2008), the gallery of the Finnish Painters’ Union (in 2011, 2004), and in MUU gallery (in 2002). Adamsson is a member of the Finnish Painter’s Union and Turun Taiteilijaseura (‘Turku artists’ society’). Since 1999, she has taught painting in the Fine Arts degree program at Turku University of Applied Sciences (previously Turun Piirustuskoulu). She lives and works in Turku. Works of Erika Adamsson can be found e.g. in the Finnish national art collection as well as in the collections of Turku University Hospital and the city of Turku.
