Oil paintings by New Zealand artist, Soraya Bradley embody not only classical skills but also the classic goals of aesthetic beauty and emotional relevance. She is a figure painter, working in a realist style.
Soraya's paintings are filled with icons of femininity, romantic and modern, with rich themes, glowing color and organic beauty. Evocative of an autumn landscape, sumptuous materials are slowly welded together into naturally poetic oil paintings. Exquisite details are paramount but delicate, anchored in strong sculptural form.
Soraya Winner of the best portrait/figure in show. 12 Annual Rotary Art Show, 2014. She achieved a Diploma of Art and Creativity with honors from the Learning Connection. She has studied interior design and also minored in art while achieving a diploma of teaching at University of Waikato.
Thoughtfully, Soraya constructs beautiful oil paintings, pieces that can be loved and treasured, to stand the test of time in a fast transient world.
