Anna Tuori

Thanks Very Fine, 2018
acrylic and oil on board
116 x 110 cm

ANNA TUORI (b. 1976 in Finland) is interested in the concept of the ‘Das Unheimliche’, or ‘uncanny’; the point at which the familiar starts to become strange. The longer one stands before one of her paintings, the more one gradually begins to see. Her dreamlike environments appear almost on the threshold of being recognisable, but details are hard to make out through the washes of paint. For Tuori, her landscapes are not merely fantasies, but fantastical realities. With space for the viewer to project their own emotions and reach intuitive interpretations, each painting is like a portrait of the human mind.
