COOPER COLE is pleased to welcome Toronto-based painter Anders Oinonen to his first solo exhibition with the gallery titled People People. Oinonen's unique images blur the line between abstract expressionism and representational painting. Confident brushstrokes are layered to create anthropomorphic landscapes. Color is used to generate space and gradations create a horizon which subtly reveal recognizable facial features. These facial constructions act as a vehicle for abstraction yet are simultaneously a familiar symbol of communication. Oinonen's work is both precisely crafted and mysterious. The ambiguity of the subject matter invites the viewer to questions the artists motives as well as their own personal perspective.



Anders Oinonen holds a Masters in Fine Art and has exhibited his paintings in galleries and museums across North America. His work can be found in collections such as the Musée d'art contemporain de Montréal and the Canada Council Art Bank. Oinonen lives and works in Toronto, Ontario.
