The intuitive visual language in the canvases and drawings by Tuukka Tammisaari (1984, Finland) balances between abstraction and figuration. Always starting from a source of inspiration such as nature, psychology, (art) history and popular culture, Tammisaari captures his own impressions of shapes, colors, stories and images in his typically rough brushstrokes. The titles are a guideline for what lies behind the different layers of paint and overlapping geometrical surfaces and motifs. There is a playful and poetic dynamic in the way he surprisingly combines his palette of sometimes earthly, often lively color tones
His work is included in private collections in Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, Hong Kong, Iceland, the Netherlands and the USA.
