About my artwork
John Sosnowsky, SOZRA
Geometric Surrealism
Artist Statement

Beauty and harmony in nature are defined by their simplicity and apparently effortless existence. Art, regardless of tradition, time, historical relevance or medium has attempted to recreate and mimic nature since the first intentional lines were drawn in the soil beneath primitive feet.

As my experiences through travel, study, and technology would have it, the medium and creative direction my art has taken spans continents, religions, time and a multitude of resources. In an attempt to recreate the beauty and harmony I have emanating in my being, my experiences and imagination have converged with simple geometry, high technology and ancient symbolism to bring an element of

timelessness and universality to the piece before you.

These pieces are meant to evoke comfort and curiosity, calm through chaos, and the untraditional through convention. Enjoy the juxtaposition of each piece as simplicity draws you into complexity.

All human construct evolves from basic laws of existence. In the case of visual arts, we remember basic geometry. Nothing starts without a point. Two points may connect a rigid line. Yet a series of points can give semblance to a wave or abstraction of sorts. Regardless of time, space, culture or belief these are the rules we abide by in our visual creations of “art”. With this collection I hope to bring you on a positive, visual journey that spans all that is known while remaining simple.

Cymatics and Creation

Cymatics, the study of the structure and dynamics of waves and vibrations. These are fundamentals of music and development of life. Without these waves & vibrations there is no creation, sound or music.

In 1787, the musician, physicist and jurist, Ernst Chladni laid the foundations for the study of acoustics, the science of sound. Among Chladni´s successes was finding a way to make visible what sound waves generate. With the help of a violin bow which he played perpendicularly… Continue

Hi again! Your works are amazing me - they are so intensive and have a strong influence on me. With these geom figure, symbols and colors you have created such a powerful and beautiful world. I usually like soft, delicate colors, but ,for example, in "Transcendent" - there are 2 intense colors together and I'm fascinated!
All the best, Lea
