This is the third painting in the series Dramatic composition. It has been featured in my solo exhibitions in Rovaniemi and Oulu, Finland in 2020. As with all the paintings in this series, the feel of movement and dynamics play an important role, the sharp lines concerning the spread watercolour and the delicate line of the crayon are, in my view, a significant intensity in this work.

Tuomas Korkalo (1978, Rovaniemi) is a Finnish artist, painter and curator currently based in Rovaniemi, Finnish Lapland / Finland. He studied Fine Arts at Imatra Art School (Imatra, Finland) wherefrom he graduated in 2008. Korkalo paints draw and create art installations. The abstract and geometric forms that Korkalo employs on canvas are evocative of early 20th-century aesthetics as seen in the Bauhaus and Russian avant-garde movement for example. Unlike the Bauhaus aesthetics, he implements watercolour -like technique in his art that adds a complementary lightness to his works. In these works, the geometric and colourful compositions, employed on the canvas by the artist, function by themselves, creating a comforting feeling derived from the pureness of form and symmetry. Korkalo masters both, solo and teamwork, and he also works widely in various international and interdisciplinary projects. He has had solo and group exhibitions in Finland and abroad since 2000. Tuomas Korkalo is a member of the Finnish Painters´ Union and Artists´ Association of Lapland
