Water Women: Swimming Figures Dip in and out of Water by Sonia Alins

March 29, 2017

Christopher Jobson

In this collection of illustrations titled Dones d’aigua (water women), Spanish artist and illustrator Sonia Alins depicts several women immersed almost completely underwater, just a head or foot poking out from the uncertain depths of cloudy liquid. A haunting tension emerges not only from the clever split view created by utilizing translucent paper to mimic water, but also from the slightly ambiguous situation of the figures. It’s not always immediately clear if the women are swimming or drowning. You can follow more of Alins’ work on Instagram or Behance, and a few of her pieces are available as prints.
