Reidar Särestöniemi (1925–1981) depicts in his paintings the fleeting moments of life that are both unique and recurring as the blooming flowers, the fervent passion of the midnight sun or the dread of the endless winter night. Reidar Särestöniemi felt that he was one with nature. He explained that although he was exploring nature, he was simultaneously looking into oneself, and he was looking very closely. He depicted the changing seasons but at the same time he was examining his own thoughts and feelings and expressing them in his paintings and poems.
