Sonya Sklaroff records her experiences and reacts to the world around her. Her new work focuses on the relationship between abstraction and representation. She is inspired by objects and scenes that she encounters in her daily life and her travels, and either paints on location or in her studio using a stream of consciousness spontaneous layering technique. She experiments with texture, color, and imagery to create joyous and bold explosions of pattern, light, and form.
While Sklaroff lives and works in New York City, her paintings have been exhibited worldwide in galleries and museums and are represented in public and private collections including the Phillips Museum of Art, the Cahoon Museum of Art, the Consul General of France, the Dana Farber Cancer Institute, Brown-Forman Corporation (parent company of Jack Daniels), FactSet Research Systems, Clarins USA, Fannie Mae, the US Department of Homeland Security, and the US Department of State.
Sklaroff’s recent one-woman exhibition in Versailles, France at Galerie Anagama was a great success.
