Hugo Simberg’s dream world (1873–1917)
Hugo Simberg’s work is an enhancement of the senses. He has created a dream world which requires symbolic means to interpret it. He composes metaphors with coherence and continuity. Subtle colours enter a mental landscape where movements are on the border of sleep and consciousness.

A visit at Timo Andersson’s studio in Merihaka in October 2021 unveiled how naturally painting can become part of the thought process and a way of life. Violet works in progress around the studio space during the visit created an atmosphere of fairytale magic and nostalgia of childhood.
