Sonja Landberg makes art which is poetic and allegorical, it is the story in which her life is charted and made visible.
So intensely personal are these art works they transform through passion and become a universal language which speak of all our lives.
From a world of forgotten objects, old cutting boards, old trees, stones and old linen, using ancient printing techniques and a sewing machine she gives new life to discarded everyday materials.
These combinations of images are fashioned into modern day Thanka´s which emanate poetry of a deeply spiritual and devotional nature. The paintings address our modern age in which we yearn to reconnect with nature and specifically this the nature of´things`.
Sonja´s work manifest as prayers for humanity and for our continued existence on planet earth.
