Kaj Ard works from his studio in Hanko, a seaside town in southern Finland.

Ard applies paint intuitively, layers upon layers, until instinctively arriving at the result he desires. He wants every work to bear the imprint of its history – each layer of paint adds a new chapter, inviting a dialogue with the previous one, until a holistic story unfolds.

The creative process involves a balance between intuitive markmaking and careful deliberation. Inspiration is drawn from natural structures as well as the marks we leave behind us.

Kaj Ard’s works have been featured in exhibitions held in Finland as well as in international ones, and his paintings are included in various collections.
