Petra Sohns Didion

Artist Statement

Petra Sohns Didion believes in the ability to create with love, passion and a sense of belonging , the art Didion creates is about the desire to portray images which inspired her. At times it may be a visual object, a dream, an emotion, animals , or a person.

The existence of P.S,Didions spiritual connection provides her with a will to paint on a personal level and lends statements of herself to:

paintings,sculptures,prints,photography, digital art and performance Art

Petra Sohns Didion`s work is inspired by contrast,the unexpected,the opposite and features contemporary surreal and illusionist themes.

Each project P.S,Didion envisions has various experimental phases. Perspective and techniques vary during her work process, to achieve a desired effect or mood. The original sketches and symbolic data remains in Didion`s visual diary as a reference and manifesto.

Supports such as papers, canvas, or boards are treated beforehand as required for preservation. Petra Sohns Didion uses Artist quality materials for all medias she works in. 

From a very young age the artist used the isolation of her upbringing to formulate the outside world into her works, interwoven Drama of a primitive force which speaks of life and the Universe
