“Blood and Gold is a painting showing the symbolism behind some Asian arranged marriages. It stems from my own history with domestic abuse in Edinburgh whilst at University, and my family history of arranged marriages through the Punjab. There are subtle red marks on her back and a bloody tear is visible. The veil itself shows her wounds. The makeup and fake blue eyes speaks of a culture of women who have a different views of almost artificial beauty. Again, to which they believe adds value to their worth.”

SOFIA BARTON is an Indian Artist born in the North East of England. Her heritage strongly influences her work. A collective mix of Punjabi-Jordan culture ignites her paintings with bursts of Eastern colours. Taking inspiration from local sites and folklore her paintings possess a vibrancy and energy that can transport you to exotic locations.
