Sonia Natra – A multifaceted Artwork

About my dear friend, the person and artist Sonia Natra.

By Dr. Dorit Kedar

December 2016


Sonia Natra as:

A classicist

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.

An artisan

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.

The Alchemist

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.

The Poet

An additional and parallel route of wording to express an aching humanist soul, never giving up the inherent gift of a creative effervescing élan.

About Dr. Dorit Kedar

Forced to continuously change nations, cultures and schooling - I had to develop a wider sense of communication, a way of thinking-feeling-behaving which stresses the common denominators. The need to adapt new landscapes and land-souls has taught instinctive means to overcome separatism, prejudices, dogmatic beliefs and suspicions. While looking for the common gathering denominators, I have also increased the ability of perception and individuation. Being constantly in estranged places has triggered psychological processes to turn the unfamiliar into familiar. As an art critic in the Israeli press, a curator, a writer - have always dealt with the otherness, the different and the infinite variety of the Existent. My Book of Peace is the result.
