Anders Oinonen’s Facial Geometry

Anders Oinonen, of Ontario, Canada, just opened “People people”, a solo show at Cooper Cole in Toronto. For a while now, Oinonen has been pushing the features of the face to new bounds in his paintings. The artist has removed familiar eyes, noses, and mouths from their intended plane, and  inserted them along the lines of an Expressionist landscape.  Such a presentation of the face -associated with communication of our inner life more than any other part of the body- in tumultuous states of despair and incredulity as stimulating blocks of color masterfully applied to canvas arranges a statement which is hard to miss and extensive in depth.

You can also read a copy of Beautiful/Decay Issue: Z to read an in-depth interview with Anders.

Lulu Wolf’s Clean Cuts

Lulu Wolf’s collages are clean cut and leave a lasting impression. She does a lovely job of balancing her composition, with shapes and touches of hand work, creating tiny worlds from bits of imagery from the past.  Her work is geometric and fluid, embodying both urban and rural environments, with human vigor.

Suzy Poling

suzy poling image2_port3

Image maker Suzy Poling seems to believe in the unreal. Her work breaks the formalities of typical photography, by utilizing many different methods for production. Some of her work has hints of  Andreas Gursky, while other parts have the the surreal air of Tim Walker. Her work feels like a documented rapture, where nothing exists where everything once did.
