Sunday Matinée

Please meet Finnish artist Silja Selonen today. She works and lives by the forest in a rural atelier with garden. She also does some sculpturing and welding, but mostly, she paints.

About this she says:

In paintings I want to be precise with tones of ligth and shadow, but like to paint expressive.

But she also says about herself right at the frontpage of her own website:

Thinking of photons when painting shadows.

She combines science, mathematical structures, music, wire, iron, colours to create her very own universe. But this feature is about paintings. And to me, her images have much tenderness in them.

  1. I love how she depicts the energy of the subject in the painting. My favorite was the yoga one, or maybe the lady balancing a “hat” made out of clouds. 🙂

    1. My favourite is the Feel the Song, no idea why. On first sight I didn’t notice all the maths edges in the paintings, it takes a while to dedetct the structure….
