Sondra Segala was born in 1963 in Tolentino, a small town in the heart of Italy.
Her artistic career began, as in the Italian Renaissance, in the studio of a local artist, where she acquired a predominantly figurative pictorial language. Her encounter with abstract art was a necessary step, fascinated by American abstract expressionism and Alberto Burri’s material informalism.
The metabolic process that characterises the artist’s painting is the use of natural and waste materials, mixed with pure pigments, acrylics and enamels, fixed on rough jute supports. Painting is hybridised with sculpture, produced by sedimentation and chromatic stratification. Thus the creative process born from gesture, from the predominantly monochromatic gradation of colour and from waiting, establishes an intimate experience, a spiritual tension between the artist and his work.
The painting style is free, fast, but controlled, and in the apparent chaos, harmony, depth, reality and imagination reign. Segala’s works are characterised by the power of expressiveness of the colours that take shape, life, emanating light and energy.
