As with many contemporary artists, photography and technology play a part in the achievement of the artists’ expression. Sokol images are conceived and assembled with parts of images from a variety of sources. The final product is the result of the unique combination and juxtaposition of photographic images.
First, Sokol assembles the conceived image by collaging the basic images together from the various pieces; whether a chair, or a tree or a particular sky. The different sizes, perspectives and light sources of each “piece” yield the realized concept of her imaginary visions.
From time to time she may rework an image with different details to change the mood or feeling. Physical collage and hand painting blend these elements into a more cohesive and realistic perspective. The result is the reality of her idealized image. It is that unique result which is distinctively a Sokol.
