BIO

Sandra Koponen (b. 1961) is an artist in NYC.  Prior to her entry into oil painting in 2012, she worked in photography, video,  music and journalism. She still composes and plays music.  Since she began painting, she works quickly and is prolific.  Her imagery is drawn  from life, dream, and memory.  Subjects range from topical issues (political, social and environmental) and historical events to ephemeral moments such as sunlight cast on a building.  Paint is applied quickly and thickly and her paintings are getting more abstract.  She has been exhibiting her work since 2013, had her first solo show in a Chelsea gallery (NYC) in 2017 and has received mention in the The NY Times, Vice News, and other publications.
