To The Bone Exhibit, New York City. 2018
When viewing Sonny’s artwork you are pulled in by each detailed layer. Fragmented translucent brush strokes tell a devastating truth of our planet and the extinction of what we should protect most. On May 17th, 2018, in New York, Sonny exhibited his first body of large-scale canvas works, as well as a series of hand painted sculptures, entitled, “To the Bone.” His message dissected the importance of each animal and the relationship it had to its specific habitat. Parts of the animal painted in gold represent the value of these animals.
