Maiju Tirri Exhibition At The House Of Art In Marbella
Maiju Tirri, (1970) a highly considered Contemporary Artist/ / Painter from Finland, lives and works currently in Southern Spain. She paints abstractions of experiences and feelings she absorbs in life.
The principal theme in her art is impressions of scenes from walks and journeys, but also stories of feelings that go through her mind. The wildness, mercilessness and, on the other hand, harmony of nature meet human senses in Tirri’s works.
“My philosophy as an Artist is to seek harmony and goodness through beauty and grace. This I have tried to reach by picturing natural elements filtered through my own mind and feelings. Contrary to human actions nature as such is never good or evil. Everything in it is only appropriate. In my art works I have chosen my side defending goodness by putting the emphasis on the positive feelings and attitude in life. This exhibition is showing my roots in the North and my present in the South resulting in the Metamorphosis from Ice to Fire. To the spectator I like to give associations of joy, happiness and love and even feelings of meditative calmness or inspirations of flow.”
