Essi Kuokkanen

Kunstniku päritolumaa: Soome

Essi Kuokkanen’s (Finnish, b. 1991) oil paintings are moving between representational, figurative,
cartoonish and surrealist imagery. Her subjects have included things like a girl picking up worms, a
pink sausage traveling on top of a box and a clumsy hand squeezing a melting banana. The highsaturated
colours and whimsical imagery gives you a false sense of innocence and happiness, when
actually there are more darker and violent underlying themes lurking under the surface. Kuokkanen
uses strange proportions and laughter to make subjects and ideas seem unfamiliar so they could be
seen in a new way. In her works she combines the poetic and humorous, dark and innocent, absence
and presence, imagined and real.
