VEIJO HUKKA
The symbolic message, hidden behind the everyday trivial signs and citations, has been present in Hukkas work since the 70’s, but the content and the style of the message begun to crystallize after the mid 80’s when the attempt to imitate reality decreased clearly or perhaps vanished altogether. Though the artist calls himself symbolist, his paintings, as regards style and motives, are more marked by multiple interpretations, diversity and mixing of styles, than by following a certain aesthetic or philosophic principle. Hukkas paintings can be described in a vague and general manner simply “Hukkalike paintings” , when they have shades of symbo-lism, surrealism and naive art and intensive use of colours. Hukkas approach to a picture resembles the earlier mentioned technique based on senses and rapid mental images where pictorial ideas
are worked up and treaded subconsciously in dreams as well. In Hukkas case we could also talk of “ a technique of free associations” in which outside stimuli, current events and the tensions therein kindle a pictorial motif which will be refined partly unconsciously by the work of the subconscious. “In dreams I often do a shining painting. When I woke up the colours have faded. I often wakeup with a clear vision of a dream.”

( Tuija Wahlroos: Veijo Hukka, Sielun kuvat - Loistavat ideat. Kustannus Pohjoinen, 1994.)
