Australian photography: Sonia Payes « Previous | |Next »
February 1, 2014

Sonia Payes is an international new media artist and photographer based in Melbourne. Her series of portraits of Australian artists and key figures in the art world is one of her most popular series (Sonia Payes: Portraits of Australian Artists, Macmillian Art Publishing , Victoria, Australia).

More recently Sonia's work has veered towards surreal haunting and landscapes. Her landscapes in her Ice Series and haunting, surreal, mysterious and disturbing. These bizarre and beautiful colours reveal the world in a new, unreal and unruly light.

There is spatial play between the surface depicted and the apparent depth of the photograph at work that refers to surrealism and its dreamscapes.
