SIIRI JÜRIS

The first impulse leading to Siiri’s present work was to find novel ways to depict a (human)body and physical contact while deviating from the inherent compulsions and rules of figurative painting.

The aim is to defect the focus from the outward form of the corporeal to the matter that literally and metaphorically composes it, i.e. to refer from idealizing the human form, but showing it as being in unison with the whole perceivable world. Her goal is to mimic concurrently the organic material and the body in textures, patterns and surfaces (as one could see bodily material, and cells or debris, stone, topological map and landscape).
