All month long, the Daniel’s Art Gallery at Hebrew SeniorLife will be featuring works by Sophia C. Mone, a printmaker who works with both oils and acrylics on canvas and paper.

According to Sophia, her creative process begins with the mixing of color, which she describes as the key to the process. Imagery comes next. It is sometimes suggested by her color choices, sometimes not. The curved line is a major element in Sophia’s art. Sophia’s go-to curved image for many years has been an abstracted torso. Its “Oscar-like” shape is twisted, turned and dismembered and is compatible with a myriad of textured surfaces. When she lays the torso on its side, it has suggested landscapes, seascapes, horizon lines and so much more. 


Says Sophia: “Spending time in Florida last winter opened up the world of acrylic paints and their mediums to me. It was exciting to transform this plastic medium into textured reliefs. Mixing colors, pouring paints, building up surfaces and creating textures was exciting. More recently, I have been intrigued with aerial perspectives. Some colorful abstractions are evolving. The creative process is always a challenge. It is exciting to discover new materials and explore new ideas. This is an adventurous journey that I am on and I love that color is a key player in this journey.”

To view Sophia’s work firsthand, please visit the Daniel’s Art Gallery at Hebrew SeniorLife in Roslindale (1200 Centre Street, Boston MA 02131). Open now through June 15.

Visiting hours are Monday through Friday, 7 a.m.-8 p.m., and Saturday and Sunday, 10 a.m.-8 p.m.
