LA-born and bred, Anja Salonen studied fine art at California Institute of the Arts. Salonen’s paintings have a splash of technicolor plasticine world about them. While her oddly-colored figures have often human bodies, more surreal elements can be found in their faces in the form of poster-paint toned noses, eyes and lips. While aware of their historical context, Salonen’s paintings are heavily reliant on a post-analogue visual language, and explore the interaction between body and virtual.
