Erika Somogyi

Rock In The Sea, 2005, 22″ x 30″, watercolor, gouache, color pencil on paper

Divining Light, 2005, 30″ x 36″, watercolor, gouache, color pencil on paper

Recurring themes of love, memory and intervention, Erika Somogyi‘s paintings have this unexplainable tranquil and danger, serene and overwhelming feel to them.

Have They All Forgotten Me?, 2005, 30″ x 36″, watercolor, gouache, color pencil on paper

She uses neon colours but they are not blindingly bright. There’s lots of layers of colour pencils over transluscent layers, then kind of a tint over certain areas, some with clean edges, some with fuzzy bleeds

We Will Return Together, 2006, 36″ x 42″, watercolor, gouache on paper

I haven’t felt so heartbroken looking at a painting ever!

These paintings are DIVINE. I can think of no other word to describe them…but I am in love. Beautifully romantic, and heartbreaking too. ..
