Sonja Kobrehel: Personal Iconography

Vancouver-based artist Sonja Kobrehel likes to use symbols in her colorful creations. She works in collage, media on paper and canvas “mixing everything possible together, with much attention given to the surface texture by carving, scratching and gluing.”

Each Kobrehel work is a “personal iconography. The symbols are the clues to many aspects of my life,but my paintings usually start with a color idea,than evolve into composition in which color is the primary subject.
