Sonia Adams and Sherry Spear worked collaboratively to create the unusual perspective of interwoven dimensions using photo-collage with pastels to produce a tromp'l'oeil effect depicting scenes of Carpinteria and Santa Barbara.
A "magical moment" in time, captured in the past by photo, was brought into the living energy of the present in pastels, creating a 'world within a world'.
The conceptual artist, Sonia Adams, took non-digital photos with the intention of preserving favorite locales. She created paths, with a way in and out… to take the viewer somewhere and to a special place in time.
Whimsical scenes were then extended in pastel, in contrast to the photo-realism, to fascinate and intrigue the viewer into entering a magical moment, or 'window of soul'.
