Sonja Weber’s images of water, mountains and hair begin with her photographs, which she then processes before translating them on a jacquard loom into a very fine weave with an iridescent surface. In Sonja’s works, the surface structure, by emphasising or de-emphasising the fine thread, is crucial. When a viewer changes his or her point of view, the image moves beyond the limitations of photography or painted canvas and reacts alluringly to light, angle and shadow.

With 11 solo exhibitions in almost as many years, Sonja’s has acquired an international reputation. Her work has been exhibited across major cities in Germany, Spain, France and China.

In 2010, her work was purchased by the German Bundestag.
