Finnish artist Silja Selonen creates beautifully atmospheric paintings that are deceivingly simple. She uses close, neutral colors to paint her figures, often left somewhat ambiguous and without excessive detail. This simplicity lends itself well to her emphasis on lighting, emotion, and the often geometric figures she paints as an interacting element in her artworks. Her pictures often capture a moment in time and the corresponding feelings of those within the space; this effect is enhanced by the soft but bright lighting of her figures and the intentional blur imposed upon the figures.
