About This Painting:

Technology and biology collide in this painting. A robotic conceptualisation of mankind, at the intersection between life and technology, this painting reconciles two worlds.

At a time of climate emergency, it is a tribute to mysterious world of plants. Silent, vivid manifestations of life, they are embodiments of creativity, symbols of love.

Deceptively fragile in appearance, the rarest orchids can only be found at high altitude, in the most remote, inaccessible islands. Could they be hiding from the hand of man?

This painting is an image of dignified beauty; a sign of hope towards the atonement of human life towards the natural world.

It also is a celebration of what is wild and free.

This painting may portray a man-made tunnel leading to oblivion, as much as a way towards a more harmonious way of life.

Sliding plates give a sense of perspective and rapid motion, as if traveling at high speed through time.

As the race to safeguard life accelerates, new efforts are required to protect these delicate creatures.

Among concrete and metal, rare flowers and wild orchids cling on to life.


French artist and psychologist, Sonia Ben Achoura translates her academic explorations of mind and science into a powerful visual language.
