Saara Haukipuro: Art exhibition
Helsinki-based Saara Haukipuro discusses the emotions, moods and colours of human life in her paintings.
Helsinki-based Saara Haukipuro discusses the emotions, moods and colours of human life in her paintings. The works are each based on their own story, incorporating countless vows and nuances, rage and love.
Saara has used natural materials such as roses, beach hay and eucalyptus combined with bottom mass as the bases of her paintings. Thus, a chaotic and three-dimensional platform for the actual colour scheme is created. The depth of the works is created through various layers of colours. The deeper nature of tableau can only be experienced by looking at the surface in various illuminations. The colour scheme has been aimed at getting vivid and thought-provoking. In several works, bronze, gold and copper shades can be seen from the base.
Saara's art originated in the 1980s from the Oulu School of Art at a time when there were no alternatives to oil colours in real art. Numerous oil dyes sketched with different techniques emerged in turpentine-frosted garages and hays, which ended up on the walls of relatives. Life took different careers, however, and art as a young adult was no longer part of the plans. Since then, with major life changes and crises, the time came to seek out and realize my own gifts and dreams. Saara has painted as a pupil among others in Rome’s Studio d`Arte Il Doppio at Creativo.
