IRMA HAMERI

Irma Hameri obtained her diploma of artist painter in Art School Maa, in Helsinki,Finland. She lives and works in Switzerland. Her works have been exhibited in private and group shows and in art fairs in Finland, Switzerland, France , Italy, Holland, Germany and in the US.

The omnipresent flow with endless movement of creative energy of the universe fascinates her; from her childhood in Finland she kept strong memories of intense emotions that she experienced while looking at a clear and star covered winter sky, and skiing on the lake observing mesmerizing polar lights floating above the near horizon.  They felt almost 'living'.

In Irma Hameri's paintings the compositional deliberates coalesce into a series of evocative other worldly spaces. Figurative hints and loose gestural flows of color melt together with abstract shapes and patterns forming poetical fragments.  Dreamlike spaces with reflections let freedom to viewers' perception, and feelings awaken and connect with the painting.  As there is not only one focus point, the eye can freely travel in a painting observing elements in the abundant world of forms and vibrant interactions of light and movement.

Her multiple layered paintings on acrylic and oil on canvas evolve organically and she often works with several paintings simultaneously in series allowing them to build on each other freely.  Starting each painting intuitively, as layers of paints are added forms and shapes and more complex patterns emerge in her method of working and reworking each canvas. She paints with natural light and in silence.

She often combines figurative element with abstract expression to enforce the meditative momentum.  Organically abstract flows of flowers in some form have been on display already for some time.  Even there might be elements in her painting representing nature, she always allow her life to filter in during the procedure of discovery when painting.

In addition to the effect of rural nature in Switzerland, visiting metropolitan cities around the world gives her stimulating inspiration.

IRMA HAMERI

Issue de l’Ecole Art Maa d’Helsinki, Irma Hameri a expose en Finlande, en France, en Suisse, en Italy, en Allemagne, aux Pays Bas et aux Etats-Unis.

Cosmopolite, ellea vécu dans diverses métropoles. Elle réside et travaille actuellement en Suisse.

Originaire de la région des grands lacs finlandais, Irma Hameri nous envoute avec ses paysages en  mouvement, elfiques, liquides et mystérieux.

Pour elle, la peinture est une forme de méditation. Capter la lumière, laisser les brumes s’éloigner et voir le motif émerger.

Inspirée par les Etoiles d’hiver et les aurores boréales de son enfance ou par les montagnes helvétiques,elle est toujours captivée par l’intensité des changements de lumière.

Sa peinture est légèreté et mouvements.  Une combination de figurative et abstrait.  Elle jette sur la toile des  éléments de la nature de manière rapide puis plus en plus lentement y intègreson ressenti, sa fascination contemplative du flux perpétuel, de la puissance créatrice de l’universel.

Elle travaille a la lumière naturelle et en silence.  Elle utilise principalement d l’acrylique et de l’huile sur du lin.



IRMA HAMERI

Nach dem Abschluss an der Kunstschule Maa in Helsinki hat Irma Hameri in Finnland, Franckreich, Schweiz, Italien, Deutschland,  den Niederlanden und den Vereinigten Staaten ausgestellt.

Als Kosmopolitin, lebt und arbeitet Sie heute in der Schweiz.  Ursprünglicht stammt Sie aus der Region der großen finnischen Seen und ihre Malereien fesseln uns durch ihren bewegenden, fließenden, geheimnisvollen, fast schon traumhaften Charakter.

Für Sie ist die Malerei eine Form der Meditation- das Licht einfangen, sehen , wie Nebelschleier sich auflösen und das Motiv sich enthüllt.

Inspiriert vom winterlichen Sternhimmel, den Nordlichtern ihrer Kindheit und den Sweitzer Bergen wird Sie immer wieder durch die Intensität des sich  verändernden Licht inspiriert.

Ihre Malerei beeindruckt auch durch  ihre Leichtigkeit und Ausdruck von Bewegung- in teils figurativer , teils abstrackten Kombination.  Natürlich figurative Elemente, schnell auf die Leinwand geworfen, dienen als Basis zur langsam fortschreitenden Integration von Elementen, die ihre kontemplative Faszination für den endlosen Fluss der Zeit und der kreativen Schaffenskraft des Universums wiederspiegelt.
