Dones d'Aigua (Water Women)

Byron Bay From 1 October to 18 December 2020

Presentation
This exhibition by Spanish artist Sonia Alins brings together a original paintings as well as a brand new series of limited edition prints. Sonia is an illustrator and artist focused on the creation of pieces of art (often three-dimensional) with a poetic narrative of a surreal nature with which she addresses her feelings, desires, dreams and nightmares. Sonia makes extensive use of the human figure (mostly feminine) and, at the same time, she explores the expressiveness of elements such as transparency and blur.

“My work as an artist is a catalyst for my reflections, often associated to personal experiences, from my life and, also, my dreams. That is why, in my artworks, there are clear references to womanhood, feminism, married life, family, memory or the passing of time, treated under a dreamlike, poetic and minimalist prism."

The greatest exponent of my current creative practice is my series "Dones d’aigua” (Water Women). In these works, the protagonists of the pieces interact with the mass of water they are immersed in and, there, their feelings are amplified, their shouts are heard louder, their desperation is felt more profoundly… But also, when they are calm, it feels like a more rewarding emotion too. Thus, the “Dones d’aigua” series has become for me an aesthetic research on emotions where water becomes a visual and symbolic element that helps to transmit them. My aim is that, through the physical relation between the character and the aquatic medium, the viewer can experience the soul of the character, an emotion, her energy: anguish, fear, sorrow, peace, joy.”
