ARTIST / MODEL
Sofia Fanego is a under the skin of nature. She employs methods of gathering and muted hunting learned as a child in Argentina on her family’s farm. Standing on the precipice of a forest she sees a canvas of the heart. Flora is not a simple treasure, it is a textured form ready to breathe its life into her collage work. Fanego can be found traversing the world in rare book shops, digging with the ferocity of an archaeologist uncovering a sarcophagus. She takes the female form as subject. The women are fused with her begotten blooms, buds and branches. Carefully hand constructed compositions on Japanese paper with a delicate hand. The resulting texture is a sublime amalgamation. Fanego is an International model with a love of art in all forms. Sofia is as multi-dimensional in character as her natured-femmes. She is a seeker of the marvelous. She does not settle for less. She has a soul on fire. Her art collages have been exhibited Internationally and are the subject of upcoming print features.
“I am an excitable person who only understands life lyrically, musically, in whom feelings are much stronger as reason. I am so thirsty for the marvelous that only the marvelous has power over me. Anything I can not transform into something marvelous, I let go...No more walls.” - Anais Nin.
