Residency ArtFunkl: Metamorphosis 01
4 February – 17 March 2012
The practice of Sònia Toneu peers into the interface between man and nature and seeks to harness the values of both in order to create new approaches to the human condition, within the context of the fluid, evolving world.
Using painting she maps the space between technology/man-made achievements, and the changing organic environment producing works which operate as statements of mission, describing the intent to merge the human with the natural, the natural with the non-natural.
Toneu works in abstract allowing the each piece to self-generate. She then employs an equally fluid editing and arranging process, in which each small part becomes amalgamated into the more monumental entirety of the installation.
