Sonja Rohde - Acrylic & Oil Paintings
I am working in 2 different media - oil and acrylic - that influence the style of the respective painting.

My acrylic work is very ornate and shows my love for patterns and embellishment which show a range of influences - from Persian mosaics to art nouveau designs, from Indian fabrics to contemporary interior decoration. These paintings are executed in luscious, rich colors with accents of shimmering gold.

My oil paintings are missing these decorations and are painted in a seemingly more concrete style. Here we see two groups - dreamlike, surrealist images and portrait style paintings of people.

But even if these series of paintings might appear to be different at first glance, they arise from the same influences.
I love to create art that is strangely beautiful and captivates the viewer.
