Cruz Rocha continuously uses the image of the mountain as a universal symbol, representing „ascending“, that is, human evolution. The overcoming of oneself by transcending one’s own inner shadows. The dual world in which we live makes human experiences possible. Sofia Cruz Rocha’s interest in primary hermetic philosophical concepts such as duality is also reflected in her painting through the constant use of high colour contrasts exalting the differences between light and shadow. Both in the pictorial and conceptual approach, the same themes that lead the viewer to experience ascension and contrasts are addressed.
Sofia Cruz Rocha (b.1989, Mexico City) lives and works in Vienna since 2014. She studied Fine Arts at the ENPEG Esmeralda Art Academy in Mexico City and at the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna.
