Anders Oinonen

 "Oinonen plays with us, he draws us into his pictures using a cool subtle palette and soft gestural brushstrokes, a lush style that soon overwhelms us, keeps us transfixed, his mournful faces growing out of the paintings, sad, confused and all too human. These are paintings full of empathy, there is an understanding between Oinonen, his subject and the viewer, he urges us to engage, to participate, to project ourselves into the image so that we might awaken our emotions and contemplate our very being."MutantSpace
