Symona Colina Visual Artist going about in Perspective

 About the Egg-Scapes …

The EggScapes are a free variation in,on, over and about the Landscapes.

A world to see.

In an EggScape one can wander about, like in a Land-Scape.

One can wonder about

The EggScapes represent a window in a blind wall.

A world of  height width and depth.

The EggScapes started of with a point to follow a line.

A point in itself is a world of height width and depth.

A world to see.

An Egg is symbolical, philosophical, physiological, biological, mathematical…

An Egg has within any perspective a horizon in itself, in its shell.

In one word its “shellf”.

A world to see and to see a world.

An Egg has the prospective to be or not to become.

Often an egg breaks through to its prospective, to follow a line …


The EggScapes


"N'Uovo" : Symona Colina -Visual Artist, Painting oil on canvas 120 x 120


“N’ Uovo ”

An egg.

Just an egg.

A beauty in its self.

In it’s shell.

It’s shape.








Done well.

A pleasure…

To my taste.

"Jugglers" : Symona Colina -Visual Artist, Painting oil on canvas 100 x 100


It has been quite a struggle this Juggle…

Since going about in this Space and moving it about  meant going about with the light …

A juggle about and within space, and within this space with the light.

Trying to keep the final image stable enough to see

Keeping the final image from visually moving about.

Since the used “juggle” of the perspective tends to do so.

Things are not always how and what they seem to be…



A painting is like a  window in a blind wall.

A world to see and to see a world.

Balancing on the surface,

on the edge of Time.

is beholding infinity

on the tip of the brush.

‘Height width depth…’

Pencil on Paper

"WHAT" is to read, to see, to experience…


Pencil on Paper

The Graphite Clouds

Where the pencil touches the paper as a gentile breeze or a heavy storm the graphite clouds are left behind…

My work is like the wind

defined by time and space

I took the first steps in writing WHAT during my studies at the Minerva Art Academy in Groningen. The Netherlands.

Because questions like, “Wat is that?”

“What is the meaning of this?”

And “What is behind this? have become firmly rooted fundamental structures in the narrative and articulated framework of the visual arts.

“What do you mean by that?”


Communication, a perfectly ordinary concept, is actually extremely complex.

A concept in which countless factors are at play.

Music that sounds in our ears…

Gestures that perpetuate,describe…

Fragrances that surround us…

The fall of light at a moment…

And altogether everything depends on the weather I think.

However, it took many years before a book arose.

A picture book filled with words, describing what, with words that endowed What, the poor soul. with stature.

The pencil drawings randomly occupy the center stage and give shape to what…

WHAT is to see and to experience.

Awareness of ‘being’ is often the result of the consciousness-raising process,

that is entwined with the growing process in and of life.

Awaking in a dream is an everyday event.

On the long run just a moment.


WHAT… is

a world to see.

To see a world…

is what..


Drawing with graphite on paper.

Paper graphite clouds.

Sometimes they look a little like What,

or not at all, in no way …

In the worst case they look like  ghost and fairybears.

Yet it mainly looks like…


The graphite clouds carry names in all kinds of languages.

These give What the color of the rainbow.

Thus has WHAT become a handful of rainbow clouds …

A world to see… – To see a world…

Symona Colina – Visual Artist

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.


Symona Colina,

My work is like the wind..

Crushing, caressing, and embracing the Space surrounding me.

Where the clouds driven by the wind play  “Once upon a time” with the shadows…

Crushing, caressing, and embracing ‘Space’.

The brushes touching the canvas are enclosed and embraced by the wind…

Like beholding infinity on the tip of the brush…

And when transparency lies ahead, and time is left behind…

I just am myself, I just am in wonder.

My world is defined by ‘Height Width and  Depth…’

My world is defined by ‘Time and Space…’

A painting is defined by ‘Height Width and  Depth…’

A painting is like a  window in a blind wall.

A world to see and to see a world.

In wonder.

Balancing on the surface.

On the edge of Time.

Is beholding infinity…

on the tip of the brush.

‘Height width depth…’

A world to see and to see a world.

Thàt is where I am in wonder.

Visual Arts

Symona Colina Visual Artist

A world to see…

To see a world…

A Painting:

                A rectangle has four sides,

                one on the left, one on the right,

                above and under.

A Space:

                 A cube has six sides,

                 one on the left, one on the right,

                 above, under, the front and behind.


                  The front and the back of the cube are the surface.

                  I paint on the surface.

                  And I think…

                  I see…

A painting is somewhat like a  window in a blind wall.

A world to see and to see a world.


Balancing on the surface,

on the edge of Time.

                   is beholding infinity

                   on the tip of the brush.

Height width depth…

A world to see and to see a world.


Painting on Oil on Canvas:


About a discipline called painting.

About  Art…



Art has many interfaces with existence.

Is ‘all round’ in its countless disciplines and nevertheless unlimited.

The main interfaces employed are spatial perception, spatial thinking, and contemplation…

Through which infinity apparently comes within reach.




Symona Colina; “My work is like the wind crushing caressing capturing Space …”

A Space on a canvas is created with geometrical, mathematical structures.

Parallels visually crossing in infinity define the limits, pointing out the horizon.

The rainbow of light goes its way about … and about…

Crushing caressing capturing a Space, like the wind…

The wind crushes, caresses captures and embraces within Time the Space surrounding me…

The parallels and the rainbow of light, being equivalent, define these ever restless limits.

A Space, defined by the borders of the size of the canvas, is focussed and painted with oil on canvas.


  • is made of Storm and Ashes.
  • is more and less like a box of algorithms.
  • has no boundary.
  • circumscribes the rainbow-colored horizon.
  • a gateway through infinity.
  • the cutting edge of Space and Time.
