Statement about AOAP Submitted Artwork
Anna Tuori’s paintings are brimming with tensions and meanings, and her visual expression is vibrant. In her playful, intriguing and melancholic works things are constantly shifting; faces emerge, disintegrate or unfold into a seeming void. 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.
