The communion of past formal training and a vision to a more contemporary approach of my work allows me to express a rich and more complex and strong body of work. I use, Oil, Charcoal, Acrylics, Silver leaf, metallic powders and everything that I consider the right medium to express my voice.Each idea manifests in its own individual style.
I am fascinated with the human’s spiritual nature. As a result, a haunting inner beauty and deep complex thoughts often characterize my pieces. I am not as interested in objective interpretation as I am in exploring the emotional potential of symbolism, mysticism and spiritual beliefs and other realms of artistic thought.
Sonia Hidalgo has built a reputation as a teacher, director and finest contemporary figurative artist.
