solo exhibition by Sara Bonache


13.09.23 - 14.10.23


Sara Bonache's captivating works brazenly unveil the natural world. Erotic fluids, translucent membranes and menacing flames of sometimes fluorescent, sometimes pastel hues intertwine in compositions that defy reality and recall the infinite cycle of creation and destruction that is at the heart of our very existence. 


Emulating the essence of life itself, the soft becomes sharp and the fluffy becomes violent. Flower-like forms mutate into sunsets over the sea in a hypnotic game of continuous metamorphosis. Sara Bonache transmits an amalgam of sensations that oscillate between the familiar and the unknown, the warm and the cold, the violent and the romantic. 

An organic ballet of elements extracted from nature that ooze bright liquids and display veiny petals of ethereal transparencies, shamelessly showing their viscous and adherent structures. In her creations, exuberant paths and rivers open their way. Day and night environments contextualize natural events in a perpetual cycle, uncovering elements that defy comprehension and seem to allude to deep secrets that weave a connection with universal creation. 


Sara Bonache celebrates nature as a mechanism of perpetual rebirth. However, there are also moments when the natural environment becomes threatening, the flames and flashes get out of control and the flowers become intimidating. Activity is frenetic and intense, movement is perpetual.

Rooted in beauty, Bonache's work attracts with its almost morbid aesthetics and unabashedly exhibits the ecstasy of the visual. As if celebrating rituals in a cosmic dance of connections and deep meanings, the organic elements reflect processes that repeat themselves in an incessant echo. 


The beautiful and the perverse, the alluring and the disconcerting, all coexist in those endless processes of birth, life and fading that ensure our perpetuity. Whether imagined or drawn from reality, Sara Bonache's works invite the viewer to explore the depths of our being and to delve into our own existence.
