Emma Luukkala

June 22nd - September 5th, 2021 Gallery

In Emma Luukkala’s cheerful work of daily clutter, the flow of household objects and people’s relationship to these things is revealed.  Materiality is the core of Luukkala’s work – the three dimensionality of her paintings plays with thick layers of paint and object-like painting surfaces. Repetitive flat and three dimensional juxtapositions give a tangible texture to her work. Luukkala mixes most of her own paints and painting materials to create different kinds of surfaces and textures.
