Rein Tammik


Kunstniku jaoks märgistab seda perioodi teise maailma avastamine. REIN TAMMIK maalid liikusid hüpperealismist ja sotsialistlikust realismist neoemotsionismi, mida on juurutanud sellised suured prantsuse maalikunstnikud, nagu Monet. See periood on vaieldamatult sotsialistlikust realismist vabanenud Eesti üks kõige väljendusrikkamaid perioode. Aastatel 1990-1993 loob Rein Tammik oma kõige iseloomulikumad, erakordse kvaliteediga maalid, mida teadlikud kunstikogujad enim ihaldavad ja hindavad.
