Mexico City-born and Italy-based artist Sandrine Zondervan had this to say about her inspiration: “I express my personal universe through mediums such as painting, photography, writing, and soft sculpture. I’m inspired by those themes that have influenced me since I was a child, being part of a strong culture filled with myths, legends and magic. As I grew up, I’ve started to study art, but also my culture and my country, travelling, exploring and showing interest and love for anthropology and folklore in order to enrich my work and make a fusion of my feelings and my roots. My art talks about spirituality, occult sciences, darkness, and nostalgia, but it is also full of colors and a particular view of life and death. My eclectic style lets me express with freedom and without any particular tendency, making my art both primitive and modern just from listening to myself and the things I have to talk about. I work as a full time artist in the north of Italy.”
Divine Creatures is a work about the human relationship and nature. Nature itself is a primordial part of humanity. Nature creates, we create. Nature feels, we feel, so deep and so vivid, inside our huge and eternal soul. We can be branches, trees, herbs and sky. We are an infinite universe made of stars, flesh and feelings.
