Maija Nurmiranta – Nimetön I

Nimetön I, originally uploaded by Maija Nurmiranta.
2006, 40 x 40 cm

Today’s featured unknown artist is the 28-year-old Finnish Maija Nurmiranta. Luckily my Finnish is fantastic, so the translation of Nimëton is “ring finger”. I’m guessing here, but I would think that is symbolic for the wedding ring which should match the wedding dress. Although I don’t think this painting is particularly positive about marriage… And here’s Maija Nurmiranta’s Flickr page.
