Artist Statement

The Creek.

The creek played music and the sunlight danced.

Leaves in the water carried messages from the trees.

The banks became narrow from trunks so close they could whisper.

Clouds grew and nature prepared to dance in the rain.

These versus are the titles of four of my paintings created together for 'The Creek' series. This work means a lot to me, I’ve been visiting this creek all my life and although it’s suffering from the pressures of development, it is surviving and providing life to an entire ecosystem. It’s a special place. Although the work is presented in four panels, each panel is available individually.

Artist Profile

Hometown: Darwin

Based in: Darwin, Australia

Sonia Martignon’s work addresses the precarious state of our natural world. Armed with the belief that all living things are connected by the habitat that we share, the work aims to capture our precious wilderness, documenting its riches of colour, shape, spirit and mood. It pays homage to the fertile habitats that are being threatened daily which, in turn, threatens mankind’s own existence.
Sonia’s artworks record Northern Australia’s fragile and remote landscapes. The pieces are hand cut forms, a device developed to emphasise shadows, space and place. Her intricate landscapes and cut out wall sculptures document an Arcadian paradise, remote, almost untouched locations she has been visiting since she was a child. Sonia’s art demonstrates a belief that mankind has much to learn from nature.
Sonia holds a Bachelor of Arts - Fine Art and has participated in multiple group and curated shows across Australia. 2018 saw Sonia have her first solo exhibition in Melbourne, followed in 2019 with a solo exhibition in Darwin. She featured at The Other Art Fair in Sydney 2019 and was selected to exhibit in the 2020 Melbourne exhibition ‘Exploration 20’, showcasing ten emerging Australian artists. A Finalist in the Korean Australian Art Foundation Art Prize, Sonia’s work continues to see a growing stable of private collectors.
