Artwork Details

The Optics of Happiness

As lockdown ended
A new mood swept through
A wave of happiness as summer ends
And inspiration strikes
Stepping out of isolation
The need to enjoy life in all its transient nature
The urge to soak in the last warming rays
Of a sun that weakens daily
As the cosmic dance
Of stars and planets
Sends us back into darkness
The urgency is felt
To grasp the dimming spark of life

Artist Bio


Bio

Sonia Ben Achoura was born in Paris, France. Having travelled extensively, she settled in UK. A self-taught artist, she was inspired by the Leonardo da Vinci from an early age. Art and science converge in her paintings, manifesting in insightful explorations of mind and nature. Her career in fine art spans over two decades, with a distinctive body of work characterised by a vivid chromatic palette, a detailed execution, and a futuristic edge.
Sonia focuses predominantly on geometric abstraction. An elaborate art vocabulary allows her to bring to life powerful conceptualisations of mental phenomena, informed by thorough research and synthesised through visionary imagination. These manifest in psychological icons, blueprints of the mind in both oils and acrylics. Sonia’s intuitive style emanates from a meditative place. As a result, her paintings often incorporate figurative elements in her abstract works, giving rise to challenging and atmospheric compositions.
Sonia regularly exhibits her work in Europe, and sells her paintings internationally.


Statement

French artist Sonia Ben Achoura generates innovative works of art at the intersection between art and science. With a previous career as a psychologist, she depicts her insights into the psyche onto canvas. Her fascination with human nature at the present stage of evolution (characterised by pervasive interaction with technology) manifests in geometric compositions with futuristic overtones.
Captivated by abstraction, her art nevertheless lies between the abstract and the figurative. The artist shapes light and colour as the basis for her compositions. Like intimations of perfection, her paintings are born out of an interplay between light and colour. She creates a world of vivid colour, dynamic forms, and geometric perfection. Her concern for the environment transpires throughout her body of work, as she contemplates future outcomes through her art. The potential for a partnership between mankind and nature is envisaged as she weaves organic forms over the fabric of robotic geometry.
