ART CURATOR - Realism specialist


For more than 6 years now, Sonia Alberton has supported artists and organized their exhibitions in the many Carré d'Artistes galleries in France and abroad.

She is always on the lookout for new talents. The fact that she is able to share this common passion with teams and artists is a real driving force for her.

Sonia admires the ability that artists have to transcribe their emotions, their flaws, their dreams! She has a penchant for poetic figurative works, as they all sweetly tell a story and she is able to seek a presence in all of these, through her own emotions.

Realism by Sonia


How long have you been working at Carré d’artistes? 
I have been assisting the artists and organising their exhibitions in our various galleries in France and abroad for seven years now.
Meanwhile, I am also always looking for new talents!

What do you like the most about your work? 
Being able to share this common passion with the teams and the artists is a real motivation for me. I have always loved drawing and admired the artists’ ability to convey their emotions, their weaknesses, their dreams!

How did you take your first steps in the world of contemporary art?
Art history lessons in high school and art magazines have enabled me to explore different worlds of Contemporary art, with artists such as Niki de Saint Phalle or David Hockney.
What is fascinating about the great artists of contemporary art is their ability to push the boundaries of their artistic creation, always making people rethink society.

An anecdote to share with us, something you will never forget?
I remember a real crush from a client in Aix en Provence gallery. During an artist's vernissage, this young woman was so affected by a work that she was deeply moved by it. This is an example of how art can move people because it offers a personal experience to each person and this is what drives me every day: to perceive the feelings of each person.


Which style affects you particularly? 
I am particularly moved by Realism, which manages to capture atmospheres with small details of everyday life. I appreciate the precision and meticulousness of the technique which plunges us into an intimate universe with an aesthetic that I appreciate.
An artist from Carré d’artistes whose work you particularly like?

Even if many artists are dear to me through what they express, I instinctively think of Cécile Desserle who captures a certain intimacy that strikes a chord with me, she succeeds in connecting us to the emotion of these women, whether in movement or in a calm atmosphere.

If you had to describe Carré d’artistes in 3 words :
Unique: Carré d'Artistes has developed a unique concept with a network of 40 galleries in the world.
Engaging: teams are really invested in promoting the artists’ work.
Captivating: among all our artists and works selection, there is inevitably one work that attracts us, and that we need to acquire!

Why do you think art is important?
Art allows us to express our creativity, to perceive the world differently and above all it is a powerful vector of emotions.
