Jussi Goman, you have delighted the Finnish art scene with your signature color-drenched acrylic paintings that revel in mischievous distorted perspectives, allusions to art history, and the light-hearted exuberance of popular art. The plastic sheen of the acrylic paint and your unusual details endow your still life compositions and facial portraits with fresh, surprising content. Many viewers have noted a kinship between your style and the Fauves, especially Henri Matisse.
1. What is your relationship with art history?
In a career spanning over four decades, you have gained recognition as an extraordinarily gifted painter and draftsman. Over the years, you have reinvented your style many times: early in your career, you combined contemporary motifs with allusions to art history, and in the 1980s you drew inspiration from the masks of popular culture. Your recent work seems to fall somewhere between realism and surrealism.
