Helena Kauppila

Helena Kauppila is a mathematician turned visual artist. Her work process is heavily influenced by mathematics, neuroscience, and the observations of nature both indoors and out.

Kauppila sees paintings as life affirming entities that immediately and continuously react with the viewer and the situation in space. This finally inestimable interaction, often only subtly felt, and never fully explainable through concepts or formulas, is where Kauppila finds both the allure and the worth of art.

Helena Kauppila holds a Ph.D. in probability theory from Columbia University, and is the recipient of the Reginald Marsh and Meyers Marsh Scholarship at the Art Students League of New York. She currently lives and works in Berlin, Germany.
