Sonia Martin ARE
Sonia Martin works in the traditional method of etching and aquatint on copper plates and monotypes to create limited edition original prints.
As she says " the starting point for a print can be a word or phrase, something seen or remembered, which is then developed through drawings and sketches, and sketches from life, into an imaginary composition".
The images express mood and sensation rather than explicit meaning. The figures appear to be at moments of realisation or reflection which adds to the sense of a poetic logic within the work.
Her work is held in many public and private collections and she exhibits regularly at the Royal Academy.
