Sonia Almeida was born in 1978 in Lisbon, Portugal. She lives and works in Boston and teaches at Brandeis University since 2014. Her work is an investigation into the ways that language is learned, shared, and adapted in processes of fragmentation and multiplicity. She is interested in how it relates to questions of agency and power.
Almeida’s artworks explore disparate yet connected visual languages brought together within a single work. The expressiveness of the mark, image creation, sequence, and duration have guided her to combine different ways of painting and more sculptural pieces using hinges or sliding mechanisms. Her paintings and books thoroughly reflect the limits, hierarchized rules, and directives set by the historical codes of painting.
