ARTIST'S STATEMENT

After painting years (since 1982) traditional oil paintings, mostly portraits and still life, I started experimenting with clay sculptures in 1990 to find something new. Modeling tiny figures in clay, I started using those miniature sculptures as models to my paintings. By 1990-91 I had created my own ism: MARUism- " Manifestations Animées dans la Réalité Unique ".
Human relations, meetings, feelings and everyday happenings metamorphosed into animal-like forms in colourful worlds, expressed in a kind of subconscious world between Dalí and Disney with a touch of Gauguin.

MARUISM
What is Maruism? - It is a new ism created by me, Marja-Liisa Iivonen. M.A.R.U.; M for Manifestations, A for Animées (Animated, lively), R for Réalité (Reality) U for Unique. I grew up with Disney, admire Dalí for his skill and brain and love Gauguin's colors. MARUism- " Manifestations Animées dans la Réalité Unique ". Human relations, meetings, feelings and everyday happenings metamorphosed into animal-like forms in colorful worlds expressed in a kind of subconscious world between Dalí and Disney with a touch of Gauguin.
 
MANIFESTO OF MARUISM

Maruism separates painting from the imitation of other artists and artistic movements, isms, and from the imitation of the visible in order to show its true essence unveiled.
Maruism originates from the objects and forms of the nature, mixes them into abstract concepts of the human beings and turns the abstract into concrete.
