① Artwork:

Time Lick in Red

This painting in red depicts a human figure trying to lick a dangling watch that traces the path of a pendulum. The artist's work questions the concept of selfhood while exploring its edges. Salonen's compositions frequently depict the human inextricably entangled within global networks, or as a holobiont—a discrete ecological unit composed of a host and related organisms and species. The artist's work examines the psycho-social complexities and philosophical implications of ecological relationships, as well as trauma, materiality and the embodied experience of female subjectivity.

③ Artist:

Anja Salonen

Anja Salonen’s colorful figurative paintings depict fantastical and imagined worlds of electric vibrancy—settings that exist on a spiritual plane outside of time and space. The artist draws inspiration from theories of discrete ecological entities consisting of a host organism and their dependents, or holobionts. Salonen’s work frequently envisions ecosystems of interconnected species that transcend our notions of human-animal interaction.
