WINDSCAPES

One starts with a point than follows a line following the comprehensive wind…

Symona Colina - Visual Artist

“Painting is the silence of thought and the music of sight.”
Orhan Pamuk

A painting
A drawing
Starts with a point.
One out of infinite possibilities…
Than follows a line,
on the surface of height and width,
following the comprehensive wind,
crushing, caressing, capturing… a space.
Almost touching the horizon…
A whisper of the wind on the cutting edge…

Once upon a time…

One day many… many years ago…
Almost yesterday..
I came across a beautiful box with crayons… colored pencils…
It was a bit like looking at a rainbow, finding a rainbow

I picked up the box filled with these colored pencils.
Sat down in the evening light and started to draw…

Not knowing at the time, that it was the beginning of a never-ending story…
Now, since time has passed… the colored pencils are as once in my now old hands…
Although I learned a lot and came a long way…

Within time I came to know that I am not far from the begin of this never ending story.” 

Symona Colina

Symona Colina

Symona Colina born in Ridderkerk the Netherlands in 1954.
Participated in a number of exhibitions in several countries;
the Netherlands, the United States, Italy, Spain, Belgium, England, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, France ...

My work is like the wind, perceiving perspective. A perspective which touches and surrounds me, and in its essence forms the source of my work and sparkles in endless interfaces.

Pencil on Paper - Oil on canvas

Pencils in my hand,
weaving lines and tunes of grey's
Words strung like beads on a string
fall feather light on thin paper,
a song to see.
Shades of graphite dust rest on the paper
in a high-pitched Rhapsody.

Composing with the shades of the rainbow in
Oil on Canvas and Colored Pencil on Paper

A world to see...

Art has many interfaces with existence.

Is all round in its countless disciplines.

And nevertheless unlimited.

The interfaces employed by Symona Colina in the visual arts chiefly tie in with:

'spatial perception, spatial thinking and contemplation.'

Through which infinity apparently comes within reach.
