Gallery FUMI is delighted to announce an exhibition of works by Tuomas Markunpoika, marking the artist’s first solo presentation with the gallery.
Unveiling a new series of works, Contra Naturam explores the visually and conceptually captivating relationship between natural and artificial, craft and industrial materials.
Verging on the sculptural, the works in the exhibition bear the marks of their own creation. Building layers of ancient Moroccan Tadelakt plaster on a ductile synthetic material in a labour-intensive process, the artist works and reworks the form with spatulas and palette knives, etching the powdery fragility of plaster onto the seductively tactile surface of the finished piece.
