Dear diary…and so begins the new inspiration behind visual artist Kata Antonio’s new works. This Finnish-Filipino artist continues to paint women figures mostly, as she has done for a number of years. The long time spent in what she calls a kind of desert of the imagination
led her to discover new material, that she always had but was never approached in this way before. This, along with the artist’s readings about the interesting subject of alchemy have brought out these paintings, in an exhibition called…”Heart Alchemy”.

During the opening night the artist would like to share a brief introduction about this new material and she would like to say something about alchemy too.
