ABOUT VIRVA HINNEMO https://www.virvahinnemo.com/ My work has always been grounded by perception and for many years I worked from life. While my work has become more abstract, I still feel that strong connection to all things real. I don’t paint from life anymore but the memory of working with those kinds of elements feels very much alive. My mind sifts through all kinds of familiar associations fueling the work with a lighter subject some of the time and with more weight at other times. I’m driven to make something that can stand on its’ own.
