Maija Käyhkö is a Helsinki-based visual artist working with sculpture and drawing.
Her practice combines a variety of traditional and non-traditional materials and techniques with semi-abstract expression.
In her sculptural work Käyhkö works in series, often using familiar everyday objects as a visual starting point, or appropriating these actual materials and objects into her work. She aims to create objects that exist in the intersection of manual work and conceptual thought, the abstract and the tangible. Interrogating the relation between perception and functionality, and negotiating the limits between images and objects are constant themes in her artistic practice.
