I like to paint with oil colours because the structure and feeling of the painting is thick and enables the painting to have many layers. When a photograph gives a picture two dimensions a painting can have many different perspectives on one issue. A tray can fly in the sky and the colours can change depending on the feelings expressed. I have worked with many different themes and materials over the years but the colours and the oil paint are still the core of my art.
Painting with aquaria is completely different from oil painting. The running water and colours making formations by chance is a fascinating process where the painting starts to lead once imagination. The playfulness and the chance are thrilling.
Hanna Uggla is a visual artist who lives and work in Helsinki. She exhibits frequently and works with large oil paintings and aquarelles.
"I mainly paint expressive coloristic and large oil paintings where the paint is thick with many layers. I like to express myself with colours but sometimes I feel like painting only black and white with Ink or aquarell. The inspiration for my artwork comes from my own experience. Themes are rising from the subconscious and sometimes the inspiration comes from the nature, musik, a poem or from meeting with different people. The painting process itself also inspires me and I never end up where I planned. I get into the painting and the work starts to flow. I studied in the Art school Maa in Suomenlinna and I have had numerous solo and group exhibitions in Finland. I have been board member of the Helsinki Artists´Association and am presently part of the exhibition board of Helsinki Artists´association.
