About my dear friend, the person and artist Sonia Natra.
By Dr. Dorit Kedar
Sonia Natra as:
Assimilating the role of a Renaissance sculptor, able to recreate in stone, bronze, gypsum or marble the vivacity of a person by decoding the essence of the personality, expressed by singular traits and characteristics, posture, garments and chosen secular attributes.
Practicing the craft of interlacing abstract geometric or organic forms in the domain of basic matter – clay.
An explorer of matter
Always willing and prepared to test and experience the workings of art upon the variety of potential surfaces as enamel, wood, silk or ceramics.
An explorer of contents
Permanently wandering between the tradition of art history and the spirit of the adventures, thus examining the inter-connection of the figurative and abstraction, subjective perspective and the laws of space, myth and realism
The hunter of the seen
Challenged by the changing postures of a model through a rapid drawing and minimal impressionist shadowed areas.
The contemplator and observer
Committed to be the observer of the moment and see the pictorial as well as the presumably apparent reality as one inseparable picture.
A searching soul inclined to existential feelings combined with the satisfaction and joy of accomplishing a work of art. Thus art becomes a vital inner necessity to avoid sinking into the mud of memory and daily life.
An additional and parallel route of wording to express an aching humanist soul, never giving up the inherent gift of a creative effervescing élan.
