Gallery Huuto Uudenmaankatu
My exhibition Sabroso consists of a series of works that I’ve created using a flatbed scanner. The technique is known as scanography.
In my work colors play a key role.The strong red moves towards, the yellow stays still, the black becomes a void. I have created the works through a collage-like work process. What is essential is the clarity of shapes. In terms of expression the series draws inspiration from, among others, Ellsworth Kelly and Carmen Herrera’s simple yet effective use of colors and shapes as well as Wassily Kandinsky’s thoughts regarding the connection between abstract art and music. How can the concepts of silence, repetition, rhythm and improvisation be expressed in a visual format?
