The story of In-between Worlds

This artwork was created in February 2013 as part of Painters at the Park, an event at Waitakaruru Sculpture Park and Arboretum near Hamilton, in which 18 visual artists including Sofia were invited to create original artworks on-site responding to the environment. On the experience Sofia says: "I had an incredible, quite surreal day painting outside in a huge, disused quarry, which had a beautiful lake abundant with water lilies. It was so energising that with pre-prepared background colours I broke my own record by painting three works in one day."

"In-between worlds" is an oil study of the surface of the lake and its water lilies. We see only a reflection in this painting. Just as in life, we find ourselves in an in-between space that hides hidden worlds below and only hints at what is above.

Minson describes the painting process: "Bees buzzed around my head and the sun tried to beat down on me as I took cover under the trees with my paints and canvases. The lake brought up notions of reflection, surface and hidden-depths and the Waitakaruru Arboretum and Sculpture Park began to take on a new meaning. For me, driving 2 hours from Auckland to be there, the park was acting like a gateway or a catalyst for getting back to nature, offering a space of inspiration and connection in my fast-paced, digital lifestyle and reminding me of our dual spiritual and physical nature. The park was designed by human minds but it is essentially an in-between space, a space somewhere between man-made and natural, between the physical and spiritual. I used a more textured "painterly' technique with generous quantities of oil paint on each brush stroke, which made this piece fast and spontaneous."
