The Art of Petri Salo & Axel Sutinen


It´s always a challenge to be faced with images that delicately balance feelings of optimism and doubt about the world we live in. Axel Sutinen´s and Petri Salo´s paintings take up on a journey through a mindscape that reveal our interwoven environments that we often take for granted.

With their way of fusing ancient and contemporary symbols, they create an atmosphere that can catch us off guard, as if time were catching up with us. They are able to lift a veil, without being melodramatic, on issues of personal significance and events that become transformed into expressions that can reach us all.
