What if you spent every day looking for One Beautiful Thing?

Water Women

Happy July 4th! What’s more American than spending the holiday by the seaside (along with everyone else in creation)? Nothing. That’s what.

Today’s special thing is the wonderful, beachy art by Sonia Alins. She calls this series Dones d’aigua (Water Women), and I find it utterly fascinating. Though the colors in her tri-dimensional collages are serene and the waters appear calm, some of her subjects still seem to be struggling against unseen forces. I know how they feel. Damned undertow…

“When taking the first steps of my Dones d’aigua series, water came to me as the perfect medium to communicate and expand emotion. So, the protagonists of my works interact with this mass of water where they are immersed and, there, their feelings are amplified, their shouts are heard louder, their desperation is felt more profoundly… But also, when they are calm, it feels like a more rewarding emotion too.”
