SONIA STEWART- COVID DIVAS
A SERIES OF PAINTINGS PEEPING at THE LIVES
OF THE EVERYDAY DIVA DURING LOCKDOWN
WEDNESDAY 13TH APRIL 5-7PM
Meet the Covid Divas, born during the second lockdown in 2021. Fresh out of Vogue and Pinterest’s inspiring pages, these divas are glamorous women in all of us trying to accommodate their sexy standards whilst in challenging domestic positions – literally. Their names reflect the hues of the paintings, echoing their mental status. They portray the boredom, idleness, and bewilderment these lockdowns have thrown at us. They are all painted on stretched canvas, in oil and acrylics on a spray paint background.
Sonia Stewart is a French artist, painter, and photographer, who moved from Paris to Sydney with her family in 2015. Her paintings in this exhibition consist of women in a dazed and bewildered state, portraying their vulnerability, with sexual undertones.
