An abstract portrait of characters, environments and experiences morphs into a singular cell that clads a historical structure. Life moves through, constantly evolving with time whereupon the structure becomes a vessel – containing, channelling. Breathing while staying still. Recollections echoed from within, over the edges, from a distance, deep down under.
The mural combines familiar forms and patterns which overlap and generate a labyrinthine surface composition. Each layer has a distinct character where smaller structures coexist with larger patterns, creating paths, vibrating and echoing, luring the viewer into a journey of micro hard-edged abstracts.
Soph has always been fascinated by memories and emotions resonate over time and how relationships with them change when stories are retold. Both narrator and listener are often denied access to the true history as memory is easily distorted. Recollections blur and intertwine.
The artist’s approach to painting tries to encapsulate these memories, however flawed they may be. This allows viewers to reimagine and reconstruct stories, bringing new perspectives and discoveries with each piece told to them or repeated to themselves. The endless journeys of living, experiencing, learning, unlearning and thriving are constants that ought to be balanced as humanity celebrates the ambiguities and randomness of life.
