ANNA TUORI’s visual expression is vibrant, playful, intriguing and melancholic. Her paintings are brimming with tensions and meanings, and in them things are constantly shifting; faces and other shapes emerge, disintegrate or unfold into a seeming void. Some of the shapes are entirely abstract, while others are subtly suggestive and therefore recognisable. Painting provides Tuori with a way to examine things that cannot truly be seen nor verbalised and to investigate how such things can be portrayed. A recurrent theme is how things appear on the outside and what they conceal within.  

Anna Tuori (b. 1976) graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts, Helsinki, in 2003, and studied at L’École Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts, Paris, between 1999–2000. In 2011 she was awarded as the Young Artist of the Year, and she’s been shortlisted for the prestigious Carnegie Art and Ars Fennica awards.Tuori’s works have been exhibited in many solo and group exhibitions, including at venues such as Galerie Suzanne Tarasieve in Paris, the Busan Museum of Art in South-Korea, the Efremidis Gallery in Berlin, the Norrköping Museum of Art and the Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art in Kansas City. Her works are included in various private and public collections, such as the HAM Helsinki Art Museum, the Museum of Contemporary Art Kiasma, the Saastamoinen Foundation, Sara Hildén Art Museum and the Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art.
