Bunes Widing, Sonja M.

Drawing and painting

Light, life and geometry – darkness, death and chaos.

Two geometrical structures, based on golden section proportions and slightly shifted are the ground for these dawings. The light appears as a consequence of the combination of contrasts between darkness and light, and the gradiations of colour moving between them. Dynamic vibrations are the result of intense drawing on the rock before printing followed by layers of energetic colour pencil lines on the print.

Quivering energy through my body. Atmospheric calm in my mind. Eyes focused. Knees low. A little smile. Vibrating spacious calm. Heavy darkness. Light light. Contrary motion. Simultaneously. Up-down. Heaven-earth. Out-in. Straight-bowed. Fast-slow. Spontaneous-deliberate…

The space outside reflects what is inside.
