Artist Bio: Sonia Bombart

Sonia's canvases reflect an enlightened upbringing. Raised in a culturally rich, sophisticated family in Mexico City. She brings an inventive flair based on a blend of an extensive participation in dance, voice, theater, multi-media production, and music. Sonia took a computer animation course at the Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale combined with numerous formal classes in visual arts at the Center of Contemporary Printmaking in Norwalk, CT and the Silvermine Art Guild in New Canaan. 

Sonia begins by applying a thin base of spray paint followed by a variety of strokes and gestures, with thin and thick brushes, various palette knives, sticks, and even her fingers to make a spontaneous mark. She mixes the paint directly on her canvases, and often times wipes it off waiting for the surprise element to make it's appearance. Music is a heavy influence for her work, as it is used to set the mood. Palette choice is essential as it works in unison with the music that she listens to. Her work process is never the same, varying as she creates different moods and outcomes. 

 

I try to paint an image that doesn't exist.
