ABOUT ME

The most frequent painting subject of the academy-trained painter Sonja Brzak is a human figure. The painter is devoted to depicting one or more human figures that she connects and blends into one unbreakable unity. Her work consists mostly of paintings that seem abstract at first sight and are composed of many sharp-edged shapes in clean and dominant colours red and blue. However, only a few paintings are completely undefined in terms of their theme and they distance themselves from the subject with their geometric abstraction. The painter sometimes experiments with automatism and uncontrolled bodily movements, and she softens or "liberates" the sharpness and hardness of geometric motifs by dripping light or dark colours on colourful canvases, and by doing so, she creates a swirling composition of small and large marks. My first love is painting. Oil on canvas, acrylic. Another love and passion is ceramics. Art pottery. For a long time I was looking for a way to transfer my abstractions to ceramics and I realized that the finesse and tenderness of the cup and saucer attracted me the most. I transferred my abstract motifs to the walls of fine, elegant cups, and I create on a saucer as a canvas. Vivid and rich colors, delicate lines and the eye as a light motif keep me excited and discovering a new world. I'm a perfectionist and the elegance of the ENIGMA cup,saucer and bowl is a reflection of my personality and character. Being consistent with yourself and balancing stylistically and being recognized is a trait that every artist needs to go.

BIOGRAPHY

Academic painter and ceramist, Sonja Brzak, lives and works in Sveta Nedelja, Croatia. In her artistic creation, she prefers figurative expression, canavas of larger dimension,and,as far as media are concerned, oil, colage. She inclines to abstracton and expressionism. Sonja Brzak ends high artistic education in Ljubljana Arthouse-College of Visual Arts where she acquired the title of graduate painter. Her paintings are rich in color, to attract viewers for color harmony and their complementarity. On each canvas is dominated by the figure or figures in the second position. In the background is frequently denied, leaving the viewer the ability to focus on the characters and look for a new angle of view, and that the characters tell their story which makes us positive emotions. Play with the colors, the characters come to us in the characteristics and often in an abstract way. Continuous research opportunities in oil on canvas creates vivid and impressive creations.
The movements of the brush and painting provide cutting edge technology, commitment and high aesthetic value of each work and the dominant quality.

TECHNIQUE

In my work I am constantly researching. Ceramics, pencil, acrylic, oil on canvas, design.
By discovering the techniques in them, I perfect myself, find the hidden joys of creation and enrich the lives of myself and others.
