DESIGN BUILD INSTALL
This site-specific aspect of the work is very important to Sophie; it is about getting art out of the gallery and into the public arena. Sophie also creates pieces for private commission.
How I work
The work usually begins with a surreal medley of raw materials, perhaps some stainless-steel medical equipment, antique chocolate moulds, teeth from large farm cutting machinery, circular saw blades and car suspension springs.
A spring mattress becomes a sheep, garden shears become a bird or cutlery becomes fingers and toes. The sculptures may grow organically as new objects are found or added. Each project is unique in terms of raw material and scale.
