I constantly test new dimensions in style, art movements, and materials. I explore the realm from one extreme to another, in ways that if one day I work with light and bright colors, the second day I find myself into the dark side of a color palette. I find contrasts to be unique and a great catalyst for my artistic expression. This is my first acrylic painting with a figurative troll in the center of the composition. While sketching it, I realized that mythical creatures will play an important part in my future painting.
They are enchanting and full of magnetism.
Sonia delves into design sculptures, acrylic/oil paintings, and papier mâché on glass. My initial contact with art happened around three decades ago back in Eastern Europe, where I have had the opportunity to meet and work with some of the most interesting and talented colleagues. Gradually, while my life has taken various paths, art remained a constant and treasured companion. Being born in Transylvania and having spent a lengthy first part of my life on the steps of Dracula’s castle and its surroundings has fed me the passionate thirst to delve into the mystique world with multiple cultural nuances. Hence, this is reflected as a source of inspiration in my work. All these allowed for a stance towards crowded mixtures of primitive inspired colors, tree-dimensional geometrical shapes, and asymmetric patterns of shapes that act as a brain stimulant as being part of my art vision.
