Sonia Kiki Jones, formerly Sonia Richter, is a New Zealand mixed media artist who draws her inspiration from human stories creating bold three dimensional wall hung artworks.
“All our experiences, past lives, friendships, wounds, loves and losses…all combine together inside of us to shape the uniqueness of who we are. In a world of constant distractions, and outer stimulations, it is so important we take the time to tap into the depths of our own soul, to be still enough to explore and discover the power and beauty that resides in each of us. I want my artwork on people’s walls to be a memento that everyday reminds them of that realization.”
I live in Wanaka, a stunning resort town in Central Otago. Where I have my studio, gallery and installation spaces in my home. So if you are down this way, come by for a visit. The espresso machine is always on and if it’s out of my gallery hours, I’m happy to make an alternative time to see you.
In 2017, I had a solo exhibition in New York City, The State of [a] Dress. A collection of 12 of my bold 3D wall hung artworks, using clothing as my canvas.
This was when I was married, and going by the name Sonia Richter...the confusions of a professional woman! As I'm still updating this new website, this history isn't currently online apart from on my public FB page. Send a friend request and connect with me here, or on instagram which is also being updated as I got hacked...clearly I needed an online cleansing :)
