Öljy ja tempera / Oil and tempera

Matti Hyvönen

Nature study

The subject of the picture is a nature view.
Nature is surprising and endless. In perception, there is always more than I could ever imagine, or make up on my own.
The picture is a fantasy.
It is about perception and conception, chaos and cohesion.
In the picture, forms and structures emerge from matter. It presents the natural object as a system, describing its mechanisms and material constitution, its properties and functions analytically separated.

Painting is a contemplation of aesthetics and perception.


Matti Hyvönen, 1989, Kerava
