About

Titled: Chants. Hand signed and dated. Sonja Kuhfahl (1928-) is a German born woman artist. She began her art career studying fashion design in Europe, and after raising a family in the USA, has been exploring fine art painting and collage for more than 35 years. Building upon her free and loose style in watercolor, which she developed with Nicholas Reale, Sonja was inspired to explore acrylics as a member of Edward Betts master class workshop in Maine in the 1980s. Her use of transparent and opaque passages, glazes, and impasto, along with gilding with gold foil or gold leafing, yield a body of complex surfaces and texture to create luminosity in her paintings. She has been painting now for 35 years, has had eighteen one-woman shows, was in 120 juried shows, and has over fifty awards, including two Grumbacher Gold Medallions and one Silver Medallion. Professional memberships include: National Society of Painters in Casein & Acrylic, National Collage Society, and Lorillard Wolf Art Club. Sonja’s mixed media paintings are built slowly: layer upon layer, color upon color, she manipulates surfaces through various means, creating texture and mystery. Sonja Kuhfahl’s work has appeared in more than 120 juried and invitational exhibitions. She is a signature Member of the National Collage Society, Lorillard Wolfe Art Club, and the National Society of Painters in Casein and Acrylic.
