Henni Alftan at OVR: Miami Beach Miami, 25 November 2020
Henni Alftan is a favourite painter of ours and showing this sublime new painting with Karma OVR: Miami Beach.
Born in Helsinki, Finland, Alftan is now based in Paris. Her pared-back paintings are figurative but restrained, and often feature close-ups or cropped compositions reminiscent of photographs.
Areas of flat warm colour and her playful but delicate treatment of light and texture make these images so seductive. She possesses many of the best qualities of an abstract painter, whilst simultaneously teasing us with fragments from her lived experience.
