“Liquid Darkness”

Oona Oikkonen

Afstudeerproject MA Beeldende Kunsten

What occurs when nature, human beings, and their complex behavior come together is something that Oona Oikkonen is highly seduced to capture through a photographic lens. Her photographs are drenched in color with predominantly orange hues, cinematic in a way that feels sensual and dreamlike. Her latest fascination for volcanoes originated from her visit to the Vesuvius in Naples, Italy. Through Liquid Darkness Oona Oikkonen is researching the relationship of the living and their nature - vulnerability in surroundings where one has to face their mortality. Volcanoes keep destroying and creating, as well as it occurs with human beings. There is a kinesthesia of devastation and creation that fascinates her.
