SONJA ROBAR - BIO

 

 

Carl Sagan once said, "Imagination will often carry us to worlds that never were. But without it, we go nowhere." As a passionate artist I couldn't agree more.  I love being lead by my imagination and as a result I love what I can achieve.

I'm an adventurer, traveller and observer, and feel that I have been a hunter, gatherer and maker for most of my life.  As a child I was making paper mosaic artworks from old magazines and newspapers and necklaces from discarded plastics and food packaging. I've always had a love for texture and experimentation.

After a 15 year stint in the corporate world within the Music & Entertainment Industries, I had an inner yearning to follow my heart and passion for the arts and design and briefly studied Interior Design, followed by Visual and Fine Arts, majoring in Photography.

From 1990 to 2010, I was compelled to seek out items which were broken, discarded and of no use, such as broken tiles, crockery, furniture and kitchen appliances so that I could create mosaic objet d'art.  I also collected second hand fabric remnants, fringes, buttons and embellishments to hand make textile wall hangings.  I was on a high, trying to create something beautiful out of nothing and injecting life into defunct items begging for another chance.  I was also mad about B&W photography and loved making photograms. And I cherished the days when I was in a print studio churning out screen prints and marvelling at the spontaneity of monoprinting.

 

From 2010, I started to produce mixed media artworks combining photography + collage + digital technology. All of my artworks stem from a vibrant photographic composition of something mundane or insignificant. With digital embellishment, I strive to draw out the inner beauty of these images by building upon them and re-presenting them as intriguing artworks.

Ultimately, my art is about perception and transformation; it's about finding perfection in the imperfect and disciplining myself to maintain the ability to see beauty in everything. 

My work is emotionally charged and rarely produced in one sitting; it evolves over time.  I find that I don't control what I create, nor do I have a vision at the outset of what the work will become. The work guides me and lets me know when it is complete.  I treat my artworks as living entities.  I fondly feed and nourish them with love and patiently watch them grow and blossom until they become independent. 

Creating art encourages me to adapt to change, to challenge my perspectives and to reinvent myself. It also calms my heart, brings about tranquility and solace in my life and ensures that I live in the moment.

My works are held in private collections in Australia, USA, UK, Germany, Canada, Italy, Portugal, New Zealand, Hong Kong and Scotland.

If you would like an artwork custom-made to a size to fit your wall space, then please get in touch - I would love to work with you.
