VIEW IN MY ROOM
Memories and the unconscious are the subjects of my drawings/paintings. Canvases or paper are presented as part of a whole but indeterminated meaning of an “ensemble”. Things that seem to don't fit together, but there is a connection. Or it can be seen as a multifaceted reflection. I'm very involved in making these paintings as journals and linking them with notations to myself, as they could act and work as personal journals, self-examining entries, passages expressing desires, reflections or a working through thoughts about my own emotional condition. The drawings or canvas as a diary, through images and words, where the language interact with image.

Work represented in several National and International Collections. | ABOUT MY WORK My practice incorporates notions of identity and the self as creative source, appearing as a form of memoir and subjective experience. The vision of myself and my work is covered with many layers of misty images, capturing absence and presence of my body and mind, things are partially or mostly veiled and camouflaged by a skin or a mask. I collate a reservoir of symbolic references. A tactile space dominates, aiming past languages and past stories. The pieces have parallel versions of stories and histories petrified and perpetuated as emblems and symbols, that move through different timelines, I and the "other side of the mirror". | www.sofiacravoart.com
