 PASI TAMMI

My latest works depict people who have lost their everyday ordinariness. Illuminated anatomical structures create palimpsests of time that make visible the skeleton and the all-concealing skin. Longing, fear and hatred give expression to these people lost somewhere in the no-manīs-land between life and death.

The works depicting burning paintings emerge from the desire to know what becomes of art and the artist as the two are eroded by time and oblivion. The unpainted canvas, destroyed by or born of fire is like uncarved marble, containing the possibility of any and all paintings until such a time as the artist commits to just one.

Although my work is observational, I am not interested in re-producing reality as is but rather prefer to draw on my own mental imagery and the visual stimuli that inspire it. The imagination, the subject matter, light and colour are free to roam until they are brought on a collision course towards a point that fascinates me.
