Kinetic colour

Paintings of colour and movement

My newest paintings are results of a process of observing and experimenting with liquid colour. A running colour that mixes and interacts on the surface with other tonalities creating new hues and surprising shapes. Combining the unpredictable movements of liquid colours with physical movements is the focus of this series. Each brush stroke is visible and can be related to a movement.

My artistic research is inspired by the sight and sounds of the places around me, physical or mental places, nature and urban environment. My work explores fundamental elements of painting, the relationship between colour and line. I focus on movement, rhythm, layers and transparency of colour that create new spaces.

Rose-Mari Torpo (1977) lives and works in Helsinki. After graduating as a painter from Free Art School she has been working and participating in various collective exhibitions in Spain, Italy, Finland and for the past five years in Greece.
