Sylvia Laks’ portraits are drawn from diverse themes and influences, including the human body, identity, memory, landscape, and spirituality. Working with a variety of materials, from charcoal and pastel drawings to oil painting on linen, Laks invites us to explore a myriad of mythical and mystical worlds from the realms of her imagination.

This Hija de la Luna painting (daughter of the moon) presents an ethereal, spiritual scene with a large moon connected to a baby hovering beneath it at the bottom of the canvas. This evocative composition conveys feminine power and themes of childbirth and creation. Soft, glowing strands connect the celestial body and the infant, emphasising the nurturing bond and deep relationship between them. In this Hija de la Luna painting, Laks seamlessly blends the mystical and the tangible, offering a hauntingly beautiful portrayal of the connection between the moon and its daughter.

Laks’s ability to blend realism with elements of the mystical and symbolic provides viewer with thought-provoking experiences. She focuses on the psychological expression of her characters, tapping into their emotions and inviting you to glimpse into their souls, and unravel their curious narratives. Her enigmatic portraits unite feminine beauty with powerful natural forces, creating a delicate balance that is both soothing and unsettling.
