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 on linen, Laks invites us to explore a myriad of mythical and mystical worlds from the realms of her imagination.

Más Lejos portrays a young girl sitting on a window ledge, gazing out into the night sky. Clad in a bright yellow jacket, she exudes a sense of quiet contemplation and wonder. She listens to music through headphones, connected to a phone resting beside her.

The juxtaposition of the vibrant jacket against the dark night creates a striking visual contrast, emphasising the girl’s focus on the vast expanse beyond the window. This oil on linen painting invites viewers to share in her solitude and introspection as she seemingly reaches beyond the immediate world; she goes further, exploring the unknown through both the night sky and her music. Laks captures the poignant moment of someone lost in their own thoughts, blending the surreal with the familiar in a dreamlike scene.

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.
