Maaria Märkälä (FI)
Maaria Märkälä, known for her abstract oil paintings with thick layers of colour, presents subtler, black and white ink drawings in this exhibition. As with Märkälä’s other works where you can see the speed and impulsivity of her painting procedure, also in the Fantasy -series the viewer can observe the freely spread large draws of ink that bring a feeling of fading and dreaminess to her works. Märkälä sees the painting project as an action of going through several stages, enclosing also frustration and other emotions under the final top layer, that cannot directly be seen from the outside but are a natural part of the art work.
