Artist Statement Taru Tuulia
I am an artist living in Finland. The main things in my production is to combine different materials and methods.
Different materials tell different stories to me. Often I also use recycled materials; old wood or old fabric tell their own stories and artworks are multilayered.
At this moment I am inspired by acrylic plexiglass. I have taken photographs of nature at Toscana at Italy. Flower reflects life from its blossom to death. Curvy and twisting bodies of grapevine look like a woman or animal to me.
With textile sculptures I can show big and difficult feelings that are hard to put in words.
With plexiglass I can get modern and new feeling to traditional subjects.
