As an Artist I am an atmosphere builder. Impulses like personal handprint and painting gestures are my tools also when sculpting. Style of gestures variesaccording to the subject from unpersonal flat fields to organic meanderings : repeats, manias, automation and very slow or fast way to work are also my material. Likewise working after observation from landscape or other kind of model. My primary interest is visuality's ability to trigger several conseptual layers in viewer's mind . Material qualities of artwork, like pigments or surface structures are important for me as are choices of dimensions, color relations, tension and interlacement of areas in picture or sculpture. ARTIST: Miika Nyyssönen is a visual artist living in Helsinki, Finland. He studied art in Helsinki Academy of Fine Arts during 90's and since then he had worked as an artist making sculptures, paintings, installations and computer-based arts. Nyyssönen's works has been shown widely in Finland and also several times in other countries like Germany, Russia and USA. His works belong to museum and private collections in Finland.
On my trip to Germany in 2018, I became interested in traditional Central European fachwerk (=timber framing) architecture as the subject of a series of works. In the works in this series, I combine the traditional with the modern and the richness of details with the minimal. During my two tours of Germany, I collected a rich image library of fachwerk architecture. This material is the starting point for the paintings in this series. However, as I work, I modify the material to fit the purpose of the painting that arises from the work.
