oil on canvas 120cm x 90cm



After graduating with honors in 1995 with her installation work from the Art School in Aix-en-Provence and concluding an art practice-led doctoral research in 2004 in Montréal, Sophia started to teach painting in the south of France. Here she pursued her practice as a painter with a focus on space and the language of abstraction, and her drawing practice for which she was commissioned on several collaborative projects creating illustrations and visual diaries for authors.

    Hey Sophie I didn’t realise you left a note here…..well thanks the feeling was to leave it as airy as possible…and float in space……I’m on a second one quite similar at the moment but its long…
