More information

The visual artist Antti Tanttu is best known as a wood engraver. His distinctive, slow and laborious technique combines traditional wood engraving, painting and various collage approaches, and he also creates video artworks.

Antti Tanttu often chooses to begin from a private emotion, experience or stage in life, creating the work through a process of examining and expressing this experience by artistic means as part of a heritage, as conditioned by materials, skills and understanding. Ultimately the feeling should emerge from the private domain and become recognisable in an alienated and analogous form.

These works occupy the borderland between representational and non-representational, with many alluding to the world of dreams and the subconscious. The alienated feelings and experiences appear as enigmatic post-images or dreams, with the lost original feeling now present as one layer among others coloured by the passage of time and memories.

Sold in collaboration with Forum Box.
