Over the years Marilyn Sonneveld has developed a multidisciplinary practice that includes large scale oil painting and glass sculpting. Through a vivid play of colour and form, the artist conveys personal and intimate narratives that communicate more universal notions around the body, such as self-love, self-acceptance, vulnerability, sexuality and insecurity. “My work touches upon a sense of desire, gut feeling and fantasy that one carries within, but is not always in touch with. To me they represent a journey of self acceptance, in my autonomous practice, in my ability to dive into painting even with self doubt. Once you find that inner connection through intimacy, in the broadest sense of the word – everything gets better.”
