On June 20, 2018, VoCA Program Committee member Gloria Sutton sat down with artist Sonia Almeida at the Carpenter Center for the Visual Arts to talk about her recent paintings and book projects which draw on techniques of printmaking and the history of textiles. Together they discussed how visual language is often translated across various media and how meaning becomes encoded within Almeida’s vibrant-hued works which make perceptive use of plywood, hinges, LED light, and other non-traditional painting materials.
