Sonia Savage, SAVAGEART
Kāpiti Arts Trail: Guide Listing no. 108
Artistic medium: Painting
Sonia’s art has changed and evolved with her life. Now a mother of two, her recent work reflects connections to motherhood and nature. Sonia’s visual vocabulary is often layered with female icons, cultural and geographical symbolism, and elements of narrative and myth. Sometimes playful with an almost cartoon/pop art feel, sometimes more mystical with overlapping and juxtaposing meanings. Always with a keen eye for composition and a flare for colour use.
When asked where she gets her ideas from, Sonia says that she paints intuitively, letting ideas flow from her subconscious to the canvas rather than predetermined or drawn out in detail. Painting in this way, she not only reflects her life but connects with many New Zealand woman and mothers, delving into our collective subconsciousness.
