Sonia Babini, an artist of international fame, has participated in numerous prestigous exhibitions, receiving awards of great significance in the contemporary art scene in Italy as well as abroad.
Born and raised in Atri she has always nurtured her passion for painting, developed her own stylistic hallmark – an element to be seen in all her present artistic production. All her work grows on its own, no project predefines the content. For Sonia the idea arises from the colors not the other way round. Only after being istinctively assembled the colors on the canvas, the shaping of the subject can begin. The figures can not be developed in an abstract way, they become significant only because they take part of the color plot woven on the canvas. A visionary approach emerged from the strenght of the dionysian instinct of everyone who wants to become a performer. In the chromatic chaos of colors Sonia sees figures and images waiting to be subtracted to the anonymity and the initial silence. With her painting she confers a new dignity of the color - it does not play the accessory role any more, but transforms itself in main theme on the first place and then becomes the essence of the work. The main actors appear only in a fleeing way on the painting.
Her works have been exposed in Moscow, London, Paris, Bercelona, Montecarlo, Cannes, Gran Canaria, Burghausen Germany, Orangeville Canada, Roma, Verbania, Brescia, Castelfrancoveneto, Neaples, Torino, Ferrara, Foggia, Pescara, Civitella del Tronto, (TE) Chieti, Sulmona, Spoleto, Assisi, Palermo, Cesentico, Forlì, Cremona, Milano Expo, Thomas J.Warson’s Library of the Metropolitan Museum of New York, Venice etc…in art galleries, museums, art yearbooks, catalogues,periodicals.
