“Há sabidamente uma linguagem dos selos, que está para a
linguagem das flores como o alfabeto Morse está para o escrito.
Mas por quanto tempo viverá ainda a floração entre postes telegráficos?
Não são os grandes selos artísticos do pós-guerra, com suas cores plenas,
Já as sécias e dálias outonais dessa flora?[...]
“Caboclos and Caiçaras - Popular Sayings of Paraná Coast” - Graphism. Paraná Public Library. Curators: Sônia Gutierrez e Maria da Graça Simões.
“...From this new Fine Arts generation, Sônia is the most worried to show the resources of the pure line on the white paper, simply, without tricks. It’s a good thing in these times that new materials could drive us the mistake to be content only for the gratuity of own exposed material.
In Art, is intended a minimum of resources, a maximum of expression. Sônia Gutierrez already demonstrated to have a strong line and a whole inner world to be shown.
The rest is maturity, that will be, maybe, through another expressive ways.
For this she is young. For this she doesn’t believe that Art is whole ready.

“The artist serves herself from graphism like main vehicle of expression.”
“Sônia Gutierrez is a contemporary artist who makes visual poetry. An innate researcher,illustrator , objetualist and an installation performer - this artist endowed with an unique social consciousness, [...] uses iconographic elements and symbols that create dialogue to a poetics of freedom whom she is a spokesperson in Paraná [...] Her works turn into not only on alive manifestos about her life philosophy, but also they register the experimental personality that is own. Her trajectory, among the most reputable in Paranaense Contemporary Art, develops from figuration to abstraction, to research of materials and processes of creation. “
