Women are known to be deep, relentless and sensitive. Like the sea, they hold so many secrets and feel in great depths. And these wonderful traits are all the more highlighted in Spanish illustrator Sonia Alins Miguel’s recent creations.
“Water Women” and “Into The Water” are two separate parts of Miguel’s cartoonish take on women and water. In both series, the audience becomes a silent spectator of each scene. The water is depicted to be blurry and incoherent, and the women in different emotions.
Some painstakingly swim to the surface along with others, seemingly distraught and in a struggle. Some float in peace or dive deeper into the abyss showing no signs of urgency or fear. But whatever the case, Miguel’s work still seem to exude an easygoing style of art, all because of her charming illustrations.
