Sonia Stewart is a French artist, painter and photographer, who moved from Paris to Sydney with her family in 2015. Her paintings consist mainly of women in a dazed and bewildered state, portraying their vulnerability.
Covid Divas exhibits a series of paintings illustrating the lives of women struggling to keep their routines during the 2021 Covid lockdown.
“As I was flicking through some old Vogue magazines and came across these glamorous women trying to maintain sexy aesthetics while in challenging domestic situations. These girls have been a fun way for me to depict the boredom, idleness, and confusion these lockdowns have thrown at us. They are all painted on stretched canvas, a mix of oil and acrylics on a spray paint background.”
Merchandise, cards and catalogues will also be sold at this exhibition.
